Today, I share with us "how to install GApps for Mi6". The first, please download this file:
  Please reply to view this thread.

Installation steps:

1. Extracting the zip files will create a GApps-Mi6-MiPad3 folder (If you downloaded from PC/Laptop, copy extracted folder to your internal storage)

2. You need to go inside that folder and move the AllDirectory folder into Internal storage\MIUI\backup (If there is no that folder, you can create it)

There was another thread in this forum about issues with Google Play.  

http://en.miui.com/thread-598951-1-1.html

I ran into the same issue.  I am not sure if I did something to trigger this issue, like an app update.  Or if it happened by itself with an auto update.  

Anyway the way I fixed the "waiting for wifi" issue was to restore the Google Play backup again.  Once the restore completed everything was back to normal.

I think I found a definitive solution?  After doing this fix I am on the latest version of all Google Apps and have turned back on auto update.  Google Chrome is working too!  

Here is what I did:.
- Ensure Google Play is working by restoring the Google Apps.  
- Download Apkpure to allow to install packages without Google Play (another workaround to install apps mentioned in another thread).  Info here: https://m.apkpure.com/how-to-install-apk.html
- Allow installation from unknown sources to install Apkpure.  Settings>Additional Settings>Privacy>Unknown Sources
- Then from Apkpure, upgrade Google Play app.  

Once done you will be on the latest version of Google Play and can safely update all apps.  And everything should continue to work properly.  

Not much time has passed so I am not sure it will continue to work.  But if it still works after 2 days then we may have a winner.

Thanks to this thread, finally i can installed google play. Though, still gmail and Google Calendar cannot sync properly.

Instead using gmail app or pre installed mail app in miui, i use Outlook mail app. Although it cannot properly push email from Google accounts (still have to manually refresh inbox), the built-in calendar feature in this app really works as a solution for me. Beside email, it can also sync google calendar. Now, i also use this app to use my google calendar.

I hope this information can be useful for those who are die hard google apps user like me.

if you cannot sync contact, cannot  open Gmail, please follow my instruction!

Setting -> installed apps -> downloaded -> Google Play Services -> Manage Space -> Clear all data
Then step back, and touch "force stop"

After that you can reboot your device and have fun!

Other than getting the files in the correct directory, it worked well.  

Extracting the zip files will create a GApps-Mi6-MiPad3 folder.  You need to go inside that folder and move the AllDirectory folder into the MIUI\backup folder.  

As of now, I am still installing all my apps but so far so good.  

Thanks again for the info.  It was a lifesaver.
