I have google play and app gallery (from Huawei). but whenever i need to download an app through a link it brings me directly to the Huawei Gallery and of course it is telling me the app is not available in my region. how can I solve the problem, I have a google account on my phone and the Huawei cloud account.

  • when I try to download it is asking if i want huawei app gallery or play store, even if i select play store it still brings me to huawei app gallery – murielle Apr 3 '19 at 12:12
  • Can you add on the question the phone model (what Huawei model) and Android version? – Reddy Lutonadio Apr 4 '19 at 9:51

Try the following:

  1. Settings -> Apps & notifications -> Apps -> App Gallery -> Open by default, select "Ask every time" (or "Don't open in this app").
  2. Settings -> Apps & notifications -> Apps -> Google Play Store -> Open by default, select "Always allow".

You find "play.google.com" in Other defaults or Supported links of App Gallery, remove it also (just in case).
