Huawei Aiming For a Year End Introduction of HMS: Replacing Google Services

Huawei’s rise to the zenith of the market was quite amazing. Not only did the company produce excellent devices, but it also had a price advantage as well. Being one of the largest manufacturers, the company hit a series roadblock. This roadblock was in the form of the US-China trade war. It ended partnership for many US companies with Huawei. Not only that, but it also meant that Google had limited its services for the devices.

Huawei Since the Trade War

Since then, the scare got Huawei thinking for alternatives, even for its operating system. Thus this year we actually saw the first device running Hongmeng OS or now as it is known, Harmony OS. This was a smart TV device. We even saw this year’s Huawei Mate 30 Pro without the presence of Google Mobile Services (GMS). These are proprietary Google Apps, including the PlayStore. It also allows a device to run and install android games onto it. This really caused issues for users and at times became a buying factor for the device.

Huawei Mate 30 Didn’t have GMS nor did it have the Google PlayStore

Since then, the company has been working on its own HMS or Huawei Mobile Services. The company aims to have this service up and running for its upcoming flagship, the P40 and P40 Pro. Therefore, Huawei in tandem with its daughter companies, Honor and Oppo is approaching developers all over. This was quite prominent in India where these companies continue to dominate. This is because according to a bit of news posted on Android Central, confirming this idea, the company wants to have its services, its own App Store with all the popular developers ready by the year’s end.

Minding the idea that it is just a week away. The company may perhaps have some confirmed leads in regard then. Perhaps, once they do have a good alternative service ready, not only would it be a blow to Google, it would also set Huawei right back up there, to offer amazing devices which can do wonders.
