The Mate 30 series missing Google’s popular apps such as YouTube, Google Maps and Gmail. They also missed Google’s Play Store. Well, Huawei has a new alternative for Google’s store, Huawei App Gallery.
To improve its HMS ecosystem, Huawei will invest $1 billion to encourage developers to build apps and get them published for Huawei phones outside China. Also, Huawei will cut its fee intake from app developers to as low as 10%-15%. On the other hand, Apple and Google take a 30% cut for revenue generated through their app stores.
Just for your information, there are 45,000 apps already integrated with HMS.
In a press event in Germany, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, said:
“We cannot use the Google Mobile Services core, we can use the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) core,” explained Yu. “Today that’s because of a US ban that these phones cannot preinstall the GMS core, it has forced us to use the HMS Core running the Huawei app gallery on the Mate 30 series phones.”
