However, there is one issue with Chinese smartphones, they do not offer Google apps and services such as Google search app, chrome browser, maps app, and other services. This is because of the differences on certain terms and conditions between the Chinese government and Google. If you have purchased a Chinese Android phone, you won’t find Google Play Store and Google Play Services on it by default. There are plenty of other third-party app stores on Chinese Android devices for downloading apps, games and tools. But that is not the same experience as the official Google apps and services provide. The Play Store has world’s biggest app library, which you won’t find on other app stores on any platform. Moreover, you can download communications apps, social media apps, games, and much more in the Play Store.
In the light of above mentioned information its not surprising that the Xiaomi Mi6 doesn’t feature Google Apps and services out-of-the-box. In order to get amazing Google apps and enjoy latest services from the search engine giant, you have to rely on third-party apps store that mostly offer knock-off, unstable versions of the original Google apps & services.
