Huawei Mate 30 Series is officially introduced in Malaysia and the company reiterated that these new smartphones won’t come with Google apps pre-installed instead the company will use and grow its Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) ecosystem.
During the Huawei Malaysia Ecosystem Conference (HMEC) 2019, the company announced its HMS Integration Challange for local app developers to integrate HMS Software Development Kit (SDK) in their apps and publish them directly on AppGallery to win the prizes.
According to Huawei, the HMS SDK integration is simple and developers can complete implementation within 3 days, starting from registering the developer account and to the application release.
Huawei also said the HMS ecosystem will enhance the developer experience to offer technical support including hands-on and local support, Digi X Labs Environment for Development and Testing, and $1 billion of developer support program called “Shining Star Program”.
Since Huawei cannot do business with Google, the company decided to invest in its own AppGallery as an all-in-one digital distribution platform and application store for its Android-running smartphones.
And we can expect that the company can perform the same collaboration in other markets with programs to encourage more developers to join the HMS ecosystem and put app on Huawei’s AppGallery.
