We’ve previously talked about the technical features of the HarmonyOS also known as Hongmeng OS and now it’s time to move towards its development process and how the company will improve it after being launched with smart screen products.
At the same event, Huawei also announced the evolution roadmap for HarmonyOS and its kernel. HarmonyOS 1.0 will be first adopted in its smart screen products, which are due to launch later this year.
Over the next three years, HarmonyOS will be optimized and gradually adopted across a broader range of smart devices, including wearables, HUAWEI Vision, and head units for your car.
The success of HarmonyOS will depend on a dynamic and vast ecosystem of apps and developers. To encourage broader adoption, According to Huawei, the company will release HarmonyOS as an open-source platform, worldwide. Huawei will also establish an open-source foundation and an open-source community to support more in-depth collaboration with developers.
HarmonyOS is powered by a multi-device IDE, multi-language unified compilation, and a distributed architecture kit so that HarmonyOS IDE can automatically adapt to different screen layout controls and interactions, and support both drag-and-drop control and preview-oriented visual programming.
This allows developers to more efficiently build apps that run on multiple devices. With a multi-device IDE, developers can code their apps once and deploy them across multiple devices, creating a tightly integrated ecosystem across all user devices.
To get a good start, Huawei will lay the foundations for HarmonyOS in the Chinese market, and then expand it further to the global ecosystem. To expand its reach, Huawei will open up and share its core capabilities in areas like connectivity, cameras, and AI.
Huawei believes, HarmonyOS will bring new benefits to consumers, equipment vendors, and developers. As developers will be able to grab more users with less investment and to build services across all scenarios.
“We believe HarmonyOS will revitalize the industry and enrich the ecosystem,” said Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG. “Our goal is to bring people a truly engaging and diverse experience. We want to invite developers from around the world to join us as we build out this new ecosystem. Together, we will deliver an intelligent experience for consumers in all scenarios.”

Google to bring new changes in Gmail spam filter feature
Google keeps the user’s privacy and security-related concerns in priority and ensures to introduce such features and services that can bring convenience to the fingertips. But seems like the new changes to the Gmail spam filter feature could affect the comfort level of consumers using the respective mail platform.
So far, the US manufacturer has been planning to revamp the spam filter feature of the Gmail application. The company put forth its idea in front of the Federal Election Commission that eventually let political emails enter your notification desk without any restrictions.
Alternatively, the commission has approved this scheme, and will soon bring this feature to the application. As per this scheme, the political candidates that are legally registered in the books of lawsuits have the access to distribute emails in bulk.
Moreover, these emails will directly lead to the home page of Gmail instead of spam boxes. As a result, users will get notified whenever the email will push on their device. However, they won’t get the option to opt out of these emails in any way.
How the political emails will reach you?
The latest information also suggests that the first political email will approach the user with a notification. It will ask the user whether they want to continue receiving the messages from the other party. On hitting the NO tab, these mail will start appearing in the spam folder, instead of the main page.
Google has begun the pilot program for the mentioned feature. It will soon take place on all Android devices. Ahead, the company explains its intentions with the new addition on Gmail:
“Our goal during this pilot program is to assess alternative ways of addressing concerns from bulk senders while giving users clear controls over their inboxes to minimize unwanted email.”
However, it does not looks like the new implementation will bring any kind of minimizing of mails on the respective platform for the users.
