The Huawei P40 Lite is a well-rounded smartphone that is part of the P40 family. It was released at an affordable price point of less than 300 euros and offers a variety of features, including a quadruple rear camera.

One drawback of the P40 Lite is that it does not come with Google Services pre-installed. This can be a inconvenience for those who have already purchased the device or plan to do so. But, don’t worry, it is not difficult to solve this problem.

Due to the ongoing tensions between the US and Huawei, it is becoming increasingly difficult to access Google services on Huawei devices.

The P40 Lite is still a great option for smartphone enthusiasts, as it has even been released at a more competitive price than the previous generation P30 Lite. Upon turning on the device, users will notice that there is no trace of Google services such as the Play Store or Google Maps. This can make it difficult to use the phone in the way we are used to.

Dual Space App

The Dual Space app is a solution for getting Google Services on your Huawei P40 Lite. When you first open the app after downloading and installing it, you will be prompted to grant a number of permissions. It is important to accept all of these permissions in order to ensure a smooth setup process and avoid errors.

Once the Dual Space app is ready to use, you will see a folder that provides access to the Google Play Store and other Google services. You can log in to your Google account as you normally would and use all of the services and apps as usual. Keep in mind that any apps you download from the Google Play Store will be installed in this separate folder. So, if you want to use Petal Search, it will not affect this process.

There are some potential difficulties users have faced with this method. Some users have reported issues with logging in, where the system did not work. However, there’s a workaround: you can log in to your Google account by going to the browser and visiting google.com.

Once you are logged in, navigate to the Security section and temporarily disable Two-Step Verification. This will allow you to link your Google account to Dual Space on your Huawei P40 Lite. Once you have done that, you can re-enable Two-Step Verification from the same menu and it will not affect your ability to use Google services on your phone.
