1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

Will updating my Huawei Y7 2019 with the attached photo file wipe all my Google 3 apps off?

    Hey, basically I've asked my question in the heading and the screenshot I've attached, but since reading about newer phones being released by Huawei such as the P40 pro having no Google apps at all.
    At the minute my phone is working fine, apart from the update pop up's occasionally so I don't want to go ahead with the update and my phone to boot up with Google apps on it.
    I've used APK sites, but would they have Google play store, Gmail etc?
    If anyone could help me out with this it would be a massive help.
    Thanks, Paul.

    mikedt 你好

    AFAIK existing Huawei phones that already have Google Play and other Google apps, updates will not wipe them out.

    In fact I've got a Mate 10, bought in China almost 3 years ago, that didn't originally have Google apps, but I installed ithem myself. This phone has had many updates, including updates from Android 8, to Android 9, and now it's on Android 10, and Google apps are all still there and working(Play Store, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Translate, and YouTube)
