The Huawei Mobile Services called ‘HMS Service’ is currently available in the latest Huawei Sports Health App Test version. That means Huawei is working on its own ecosystem with HMS which will soon arrive for Huawei users. As Android is a Linux-based open-source software platform, after the trade war with China and US Government, Huawei isn’t dependent on Google anymore. The Chinese tech giant Huawei is all ready to shift their ecosystem from Google Mobile Service (GMS) to HMS very soon.
Previously, the reports came out that Huawei doesn’t need Google or its mobile services in the future. As we all know that Huawei has a huge market share in the smartphone industry and they have a wide range of user bases as well. Meanwhile, Huawei devices are powered by its own Kirin processor, AI technology, custom skin like EMUI, and more. However, we have accept one truth that Huawei’s own ecosystem will not that easy to develop and keep running for its device users. There will be so many issues that the company will have to fix in the future. But most importantly, Huawei is ready for the change.
Huawei is working really fast and hard enough with its developers to build maps, music, videos, emails and other mobile services that every Android user uses via Google Mobile Services for so many years. Now, if you don’t know, the HMS service was announced at the Huawei Developers Conference event in 2019. It was available for the foreign developers in October 2019 in order to provide access for developers in other regions. Huawei Mobile, Huawei Watch, and Huawei Health App will be able to access Huawei Map Kit on Huawei Bands as well.
