It's already apparent now that Huawei devices have been denied from using Google Mobile Services (GMS) since May 2019. According to the report, Huawei is ready to pump an estimated $3 billion in app development and is already working with over 4,000 developers to adapt existing essential Android apps to Huaweis App Gallery store.
Huawei is now able to use the open-source version of Android's operating system but is unable to implement any Google services. In keeping with that at a press conference in Vienna on Thursday the country manager for Austria, Fred Wangfei, said that "Huawei will no longer return to Google services even if the USA should lift the trade ban". "Regardless of the outcome, we do wish to continue our strong partnership with Google, alongside our commitment to further investment in HarmonyOS and Huawei Mobile Services". There are three major components that Huawei needs to sperate itself from Google and other American companies: Hardware, OS and Apps.
In an interview with Der Standard, Huawei officials explain that the company is working around the clock on finalizing its Android alternative, suggesting that this OS would serve as plan B if the U.S. ban isn't lifted.
The dispute/ban has been going on for a few months now and there is no clear indication on when the companies will be able to work together again.
Katy Perry wishes Jennifer Lopez and Shakira luck at Super Bowl
Perry tweeted on February 2 a special message to the duo, set to take the stage at Super Bowl 2020 in Miami on Sunday. Lopez declined to comment on speculation she would be bringing her two kids on stage during the performance.
At the moment, nobody is really sure how advanced Huawei is with the preparation of the HMS, so it could still be years before the company has a solid list of applications to offer on their phones, but on the other hand, the Huawei P40 series (which we expect in March) could also have them. The No. 2 global smartphone brand is struggling to hold onto its market after Washington accused Huawei of being a security risk and blocked access to USA components and technology.
Huawei revealed it was working on its very-own Smartphone Operating System.
The company is now attempting to circumvent this by working on its own version of Google Mobile Services. HUAWEI HMS Core, a collection of open capabilities of Huawei mobile services, helps developers build high-quality apps efficiently. The company has been constantly looking for viable options offering developers lucrative incentives to join its HMS platform.
