How to download Instagram on Huawei without Play Store
As you surely know, due to the ban issued by the US government, Huawei unfortunately found itself having to eliminate relations with several American companies. Among the most important is obviously Google, owner of the software installed on smartphones and tablets of the Chinese company and above all of the services capable of making some of the most popular applications in the world work properly. In this guide, however, we will focus only on Instagram, trying to understand how to install it on Huawei devices with and without Play Store .
Before get started
As always, before getting into the guide, let’s try to understand what actually cannot be used on new Huawei devices and why Instagram is not part of the list.
Even though it owns software owned by Google, Android is still “open source” and can therefore be used by anyone, in any area of the world and on any technological device. The ban in the United States only concerns Google services , which are the basis of apps such as: Gmail, Google Maps, Google Translate, YouTube and, above all, Play Store.
The lack of the latter therefore makes it more difficult to install Instagram, which for its part has no need for the aforementioned services and can run perfectly even on Huawei smartphones. That said, let’s see how to solve the problem and download the app of the most used social network in the world even on the Chinese company’s smartphones.
Download Instagram on Huawei with Play Store
Although Huawei’s latest devices lack Google services, some older smartphones may still possess all the rights and therefore also the privileges offered by the Play Store.
In the event that the Play Store app is present on the device in question, you can safely use it to download Instagram and then update it without any limitation.
- Open the Play Store
- Click on the search bar at the top
- Search “Instagram” and select its icon from the list that appears
- Click on the “Install” button to the right of the icon and wait for the download to complete
At the end of the operation, the installation will take place automatically and you will be able to use the Instagram application without problems.
