This can be a problem if you want to access the millions of apps and games available on the official Android app store.

What is MIUI 12.5 and why do you need Google Play Store APK?




MIUI 12.5 is the latest version of Xiaomi's custom Android skin, which was released in December 2020. It is based on Android 11 and brings many new features and improvements to Xiaomi devices, such as:


  • A redesigned user interface with smoother animations and transitions



  • A new Super Wallpaper feature that changes the wallpaper according to the time of day and location



  • A new Privacy Protection feature that gives you more control over your data and permissions



  • A new Notes app that supports handwriting recognition and sketching



  • A new MIUI+ feature that lets you mirror your phone screen to your PC and transfer files wirelessly



  • A new Floating Window feature that lets you multitask with mini apps on top of other apps



  • A new Sound Assistant feature that lets you adjust the volume of individual apps



  • And many more...



However, MIUI 12.5 also has some drawbacks, especially for users outside China. One of them is that it does not include Google services or apps by default, such as Google Play Store, Gmail, YouTube, Maps, etc. This is because Google is banned in China and Xiaomi has to comply with the local regulations.


This means that if you want to use these apps or any other apps that require Google services, you will need to install them manually by downloading their APK files from third-party sources. However, this can be risky as some APK files may contain malware or viruses that can harm your device or compromise your privacy.


That's why we recommend using the official Google Play Store APK, which is a safe and reliable way to access the vast library of Android apps and games. The Google Play Store APK also has some advantages over other app stores, such as:


  • It offers automatic updates for your installed apps



  • It provides security scans and ratings for your downloaded apps



  • It supports in-app purchases and subscriptions



  • It integrates with other Google services and apps



  • It offers personalized recommendations based on your preferences



  • And many more...



However, the Google Play Store APK also has some disadvantages, such as:


  • It may not be compatible with some MIUI 12.5 features or settings



  • It may consume more battery or data than other app stores



  • It may encounter some errors or issues that require troubleshooting



In the next section, we will show you how to install Google Play Store APK on MIUI 12.5 devices using two methods. You can choose the one that suits you best.

How to install Google Play Store APK on MIUI 12.5 devices




There are two methods to install Google Play Store APK on MIUI 12.5 devices: using the Google Basic Services toggle in Settings, or using the Google Play Installer app. Both methods are easy and safe, and do not require rooting or flashing your device. However, they may not work for all MIUI 12.5 devices or regions, so you may need to try both methods to find the one that works for you.


Method 1: Using Google Basic Services toggle




This method is the simplest and fastest way to install Google Play Store APK on MIUI 12.5 devices. It involves enabling a hidden toggle in Settings that allows you to install Google services and apps on your device. Here are the steps to follow:


Step 1: Enable Google Basic Services in Settings




  • Go to Settings on your MIUI 12.5 device and tap on Apps.



  • Tap on Manage apps and then tap on the three-dot menu icon at the top right corner.



  • Select Show system apps from the menu and then search for Google Basic Services in the search bar.



  • Tap on Google Basic Services and then tap on Permissions.



  • Enable all the permissions for Google Basic Services by toggling them on.



  • Go back to the previous screen and tap on Additional settings.



  • You will see a hidden toggle called Install Google Basic Services. Toggle it on and wait for a few seconds.



  • You will see a pop-up message saying that Google services and apps will be installed on your device. Tap on OK to confirm.



Step 2: Add a Google account and access Google Play Store




  • After installing Google services and apps, you will need to add a Google account to use them. Go to Settings and tap on Accounts and sync.



  • Tap on Add account and then select Google from the list of options.



  • Sign in with your existing Google account or create a new one if you don't have one.



  • After adding your Google account, you will be able to access Google Play Store from your app drawer or home screen.



  • Tap on Google Play Store and accept the terms of service and privacy policy.



  • You can now browse, download, and update apps and games from Google Play Store on your MIUI 12.5 device.



Method 2: Using Google Play Installer app




This method involves downloading and installing a third-party app called Google Play Installer, which allows you to install Google Play Services and Google Play Store on your MIUI 12.5 device. Here are the steps to follow:


Step 1: Download and install Google Play Installer app




  • Go to this link on your MIUI 12.5 device's browser and download the latest version of Google Play Installer app (v3.0 as of June 2023).



  • After downloading the app, go to Settings and tap on Apps.



  • Tap on Manage apps and then tap on the three-dot menu icon at the top right corner.



  • Select Install via USB from the menu and enable it by toggling it on.



  • You may need to enter your Mi account password or verification code to confirm this action.



  • Go back to your browser and locate the downloaded file of Google Play Installer app (usually in the Downloads folder).
