Xiaomi made a radical decision for the Chinese version of MIUI. The company, which discontinued Google Mobile Services support on phones with MIUI 12.5 update, blocked this service from being installed by users. Xiaomi explained that the reason for the decision was compatibility issues.
Chinese users started reporting that they were unable to install Google Mobile Services after they started receiving the MIUI 12.5 interface update. Xiaomi officials, who had to make a statement on this, confirmed this situation. In the statements made, it was stated that Google Mobile Services cannot be installed on smartphones due to compatibility problems.
In fact, Chinese users do not use Google and Google services anyway. However, Xiaomi has not made such a block until today. Therefore, it is necessary to say that the developments experienced are important.
Meanwhile, the company has not made a statement about which devices are excluded from Google Mobile Services support. When we look at the notifications made by users, we see that the Redmi K30 Ultra and Redmi 10X 5G models come to the fore. But Google Mobile Services restriction may not be limited to these two devices.
