In this situation, Huawei has decided to ship its new smartphones with self Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) and its own set of the application. In the meantime, there’s some news coming from Google’s corner that reveals something interesting.
While talking to DPA, Android and Google Play vice-president Sameer Samat Sameer Samat has revealed that Google has applied for a license to resume business with Huawei. However, Sameer didn’t reveal any other information regarding the license status.
This new means if Google gets approval from the U.S. government, future Huawei phones could come with Google Mobile Services (GMS), PlayStore and its applications such as Google Maps, Youtube, Gmail, and more.
In May 2019, the US Commerce Department added Huawei into Entity-List, which prohibits all U.S. firms including Google from doing business with Huawei.
Following the halt of business between two big firms, Huawei begins developing its own app ecosystem – HMS to replace the requirement of GMS.
HMS incorporates Huawei’s chip, device and cloud capabilities, including a full portfolio of HMS Core services and related IDE tools platforms for development and testing, along with key applications for Huawei devices.
Huawei Mate 30 series was the first one to launch solely on HMS, followed by Huawei Mate Xs, Honor View30 Pro and Honor 9X Pro and more. Huawei commits to growing the HMS app ecosystem to a vast level.
