When installing or updating a global dev/stable rom, 10 googles apps appear !
google, maps, photos, chrome, talkback, hangout, drive, vocal assistant...etc.
Commonly, most of people only use youtube and googleplaystore.
On many smartphones, we can disable others, even if they are system apps but not on Miui roms.
Others providers are able to do that with gapps but not Xiaomi ?
Non-root users must keep it.

See 4 solutions below and vote please.

Do you want miui devs to add possibility to disable them ?
To give permission to disable at less in dev but not in stable, or both.

Think, if you restore this original feature for us, i bet that LESS users will ask to unlock devices !
It is less problems, less work for moderators, less useless threads... it is clever !



____________________


- solution 1 with app : for non-root users there is QuickShortcutMaker free in googleplaystore
guides here or there in forum

> in "search", type "installed" and look at "settings", try generally the last of the list and press "try"
> it launches the right setting to disable apps (not all but more than with usual miui settings)

- solution 2 with hidden functions of google playstore : for non-root users too
guide here in forum
> in playstore, go to "help & feedback" under settings
> browse all articles, select uninstall disable and delete
> select tap to go to app settings
> disable it

- solution 3 with app : for non-root users there is "activity launcher" too but it does not work for several roms
guide here in forum

- solution 4 : for root users, see my method here
> check list in my guide to safely remove unwanted apps
> gapps, system apps and ads...

In an ideal world, at first launch the system could ask new user for the gapps he wants. A list could appear and we tick what to add but the simplest is to allow the disable option on these apps.

Asking would be too much to change.
I'm fine with the whole suite to be preinstalled, but how about putting them in the /data instead like Facebook and Swiftkey ? This way they can be removed and still reinstalled over the included Play Store or be restored at factory reset - just like Facebook and Swiftkey.

Yep, I agree. You want more Google apps later? Use Google Play store.

Yes, i give one example :

youtube sometimes can crash at launch with error 501 or 50x
impossible to repair it : wipe cache/dalvik and cache/data of app
or uninstall all update to the original app, then update again
>>> everything fails !


solution : on rooted device, delete app and re install it by google playstore as a "non-system" app
(on a non-rooted device : no solution !)

If miui devs give us possibility to manage these apps as user apps, it prevents all problems
just let google playstore as a system app

definitely yes. User could choose which Google apps want to use himself.

yes, i saw this thread
personally I don't care cause I have root but I think at all others and they shouldn't install any third app to have a normal native function.
why the disable button is locked for these apps ?
in theory, miui is better built than others but THIS goes especially in the wrong way : it makes rom heavier and battery lighter
don't worry devs. we have the play store if we need more gapps than the store and YouTube.
