Hello MI Fans,
After MIUI 8 there has been several questions regarding how to uninstall pre-installed google apps as they are part of the system apps now, which makes them not able to be uninstalled. With no option to disable them as well natively, users were rooting for another solutions. Recently out of discussion we users found a way to reach to that setting and way to disable the google apps with simple steps.
Here are the steps:

1. Open playstore - three dot menu on left. Click  "Help & feedback" - "Browse all articles" - "manage your apps"- open "uninstall, disable & delete apps"

2. Now click "Tap to go to application settings"

3. Scroll to the google app you want to disable - click it - click disable, that's it.

Now that app has been disabled until you enable it again from settings - installed apps - all.

- If due to another langugae choice you are not able to reach to the setting then change the language to the English (US).
- If you are still not able to reach to that setting use another alternative trick.

Alternate Method

1. Install Quickshortcutmaker app - select normal search - under input box write "manage apps" - click search

2. in search results it will show settings click it, you will find "manage apps" under click then click try (or create shortcut by pressing create).

3. Repeat the same step 3 from first method.

Hope that has been useful to you, have any question or feedback regarding this, let me know in the comments below.
