Applications can be installed remotely, on Huawei mobiles that do not have Google services pre-installed, using the Huawei App Gallery website.
One of the oldest tricks of Google Play is the ability to install applications remotely, by logging into the Google Play website.
Huawei’s store, App Gallery, has been there for a few years, but it was after the United States veto that the company promoted its use with different initiatives and new functionalities.
One of them is the web version, which is, similar to Google Play, and using which you can send applications to be installed on your device.
1. Login with your Huawei account in Huawei App Gallery
If you have ever installed an application on your Android mobile through the web version of Google Play, doing it on a Huawei mobile with App Gallery is basically the same, apart from the obvious differences.
First of all, you must visit the web version of the App Gallery and log in with the same user ID that you have on your mobile.
Make sure to sign up for a Huawei Account, if you do not have an existing account.
In the web version of Huawei App Gallery, you can log in by tapping on the avatar in the upper right corner.
You can log in using several ways: email ID, login ID, phone number, and password, or using an SMS message to do so.
Once you successfully log in, you will be asked to verify your identity by entering a numeric code.
A numeric code should appear on your mobile screen, although the numeric code does not appear until you accept a window indicating that you are trying to log in.
After entering the code, you must accept the privacy agreement and you can choose if you want to trust the browser, and in that case, you will not be asked for verification the next time.
2. Select the device
From here, the process is practically similar to that of Google Play.
The web version of Huawei App Gallery allows you to browse through the different categories and sections, as well as use the search engine to find applications of your interest.
When you find one, click the Install button.
A floating window will then open, indicating the name of the application, its size, and the devices that are associated with the Huawei account.
Choose yours from the list and press OK to send the installation to said mobile.
As indicated in the window, it is necessary that you have Huawei App Gallery 10.4.1.300 or higher.
Keep in mind that in the list of devices, a different name may appear if your mobile has several versions with several names.
3. Accept the installation
There is a difference between installing applications from the Google Play website and from the App Gallery.
Google Play installs them without the user’s intervention, for now, the installations in the App Gallery ask for your permission before downloading and installing, through a notification.
If you accept the installation, the downloaded app will be added to the Huawei App Gallery and otherwise, it will download and install itself.
It enables you to install the apps that you find interesting without having to go around sending links or scanning QR codes.
