Be the next January 24 when Huawei starts selling the Mate 30 Pro in our country, so the first questions that have arisen around this launch are you can install all my apps and games on the Mate 30 ?, how to download applications if Doesn't it come with the Play Store? Well, do not worry, because next we will explain how to transfer the apps of your current phone to the Huawei Mate 30 Pro.
How to pass applications from a
phone to another?
The fastest and easiest way to pass all the applications you use in your current phone to the Mate 30 Pro is through Phone Clone, an app developed by Huawei that is already installed by default in the company's phones, so if You already have a Huawei device, it is much easier to carry out the process, if not, then just download the application for free from the Play Store.
with the process it is advisable to update all the applications of your current
phone for the transfer of the last version available at
The Play Store
Once you download Phone Clone you must accept the data usage and storage permissions on the device to be able to transfer them to the Mate 30 Pro. Open the same application on the Mate 30 Pro and press on This is the new phone, while on your device current debers select This is the previous phone.
Now, scan the
QR code that comes on the Mate 30 Pro screen and selects the data that
you want to pass, which in this case we are interested in doing with applications, but
you can pass your contacts, photos, files and other data of your current
Once the transfer process is finished you will be able to see all the applications of your old telephone in the Mate 30 Pro, because what this function does is copy and paste the installation files from one device to another.
The most popular apps of the
Do they currently work well on the Mate 30 Pro?
Now the moment of truth has arrived, knowing how the most popular Android applications work today in the last Huawei phone, because we must not forget that the Mate 30 does not come with the Google Play Services, so the applications that require these services to function, will present problems. Fortunately there are some alternatives that we can use to try to solve these problems.
Facebook, WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram
Surprisingly Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger work very well in the Mate 30 Pro since we can open articles, upload stories, watch videos on Facebook Watch or IGTV, share our location, post without problems and interact with other users without any inconvenience.
But in the case of
WhatsApp there is a detail, because although we can start session and chat
with our contacts as normal. The problem is that the copy of
security cannot be used in the Mate 30 Pro because we do not have the services of
Google, so the only solution is to pass the local backup of
our old phone to the new Mate 30, and then use an administrator of
Files to restore it. The steps to perform this process can be found here.
As Facebook does not use Google services by default for location and maps, both Messenger and WhatsApp allow you to send the location to our contacts in real time and with accuracy.
The only problem of
these four applications is that they are not available in the App Gallery, which is
the official Huawei app store and that comes by default in the Mate
30 Pro, so to install updates we will have to try stores
alternatives or with the APK.
Google Maps and Gmail
I hope Google
Maps is not the application you like most of your phone, because this is
inoperable in the Mate 30 Pro, and the bad thing is that other alternatives very
interesting like CityMapper don't work either because they use Google Play
However, for maps you can use the alternatives of Facebook, Waze, or download Here WeGo from Nokia, which, while not at the level of Google Maps, at least will get you out of trouble.
With Gmail it happens
exactly the same as Google Maps, the application cannot be used without
Google services, but you can use the web version and add access
directly to your home screen, or use another email client such as
Outlook and then add to this service your Gmail account to receive your
YouTube and Chrome
The case of YouTube and Chrome is similar, because without Google services they are inoperable, but if you install Google Play Services from an alternative store you can use both applications with limitations, but at least they can be used.
And it is that the solution of installing Google services from alternative stores does not allow you to do many things, (such as logging in with your Google account), in fact, neither Google Maps or Gmail works with this method, but at least it allows YouTube boot on the Mate 30 Pro.
Snapchat, Uber and Netflix
Google is not the only one that has problems with this Huawei phone, since neither Snapchat nor Uber can be used without Google services, which in the case of Uber is because the application uses Google Maps to offer the location service of the drivers and your trip in real time.
With Netflix we tried to download several versions without success, because at all times the application mentioned that the phone was not compatible with the service, and perhaps this is because the Mate 30 Pro does not have certification from Google, so it does not have Widevine L1, which is the license that allows us to watch HD content.
Spotify, Waze, Twitter and TikTok
In Spotify you can listen to and download music, Waze opens the navigation and runs its maps without fail, Twitter allows you to use the service in a normal way and TikTok does not present any anomaly, in fact, being in the App Gallery is still receiving automatic updates from Huawei store.
They are pending because later we will continue to share with you content about the Mate 30 Pro with which they can learn to get more out of the device if they decide to bet on it.
