Huawei, Honor or most of the Android-powered smartphone comes with a set of Google’s applications and services under the Google Mobile Services (GMS) suite including its Artifical Intelligence-powered virtual assistant called – Google Assistant.
But, do you know that Huawei is also working on its own Smart Assitant, and you can now test it on your Huawei or Honor smartphones.
According to Huawei, the Huawei assistant is the new suite of modules designed to provide better services to users intelligently and quickly, in collaboration with leading global brands.
This new assistant comes as part of Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), which currently available in more than 170+ countries/Regions.
So, what Huawei Assitant offers for users?
Global Search is a search bar that allows the user to search for information on your phones such as locally installed apps, memos, emails, calendar entries, and more, as well as searching online.
Instant Access displays the user’s favorite shortcuts right below the search bar. Also, these shortcuts are customizable.
SmartCare displays contextual cards. In the early access version, users will see insights of Calendar, Weather, Missed Calls, Phone Usage, and Data Consumption. As more cards will be introduced later on.
The Newsfeed displays content based on the language and region settings of the device, as well as in local users’ local language.
We like the way that Huawei has designed the Huawei Assitant and it’s easy to interact with. Still, the voice search feature is missing, which we could see in the full version.
You can test it:
Huawei is yet to launch the official version of Huawei Assitant but the company has already started an early bird program that will let you test this application earlier than the official release.
