Due to government’s policy, Xiaomi has excluded Google Apps in stock MIUI China ROM, and that includes Play Store which is the door leading to all other Google Apps. Some users tried to to blindly search for any Play Store installer file (.apk) and eventually ended up failed. We have previously posted Gapps installer for all Marshmallow-based MIUI devices including Mi 3, Mi4, Mi 5 and Mi Max. Basically it’s easy to install the apps since users have to simply download all the .apk files and install them one by one subsequently.
