huawei mobile app engine

Comparing with mobile apps, laptop applications are limited to few numbers. Although some developer provides alternatives, it can’t cover every category. For example, we have different options for WhatsApp, Facebook, and Telegram to use them on laptop and mobile. But every developer doesn’t provide compatibility for both.

In this regard, if you also want to use a mobile application on PCs or laptops before Window 11, Huawei Mobile App Engine will let you do so. Yes, the feature allows a user to install and run an Android application with a suitable interface.

Launched at Huawei smart office product launch conference, the feature comes pre-installed with Huawei MateBook 13s and 14s. Furthermore, the company started to send this feature on more laptops from the MateBook series. The rollout is scheduled in two batches.

Apart from Huawei laptops, users of other brands can also download this software. It’ll provide Android app compatibility and let you run mobile applications under a suitable interface. Below you can check all the related information to install this software on other laptops.

Installation of Huawei Mobile App Engine:

Initially, this feature rolled out for Huawei notebooks but some users have reported using it for other PCs. There are two installer packages that have leaked.

The first one is “MobileAppEngine_Setup_1.1.1.59”, which isn’t useable after installation and needs to update further. Besides, the second one is “MobileAppEngine_Setup_1.2.1.1”, which is much normal compare to the first one.

However, both versions are still under beta phase and needs further improvements. It means you might encounter bugs or general problems with the versions on other laptops.

Apart from this, some applications are also held in between live streaming or due to network. However, it’s an occasional problem and it might happen because of beta versions. It’ll gradually resolve with the stable versions. Until then you can manage it by refreshing the window or restarting the app.

New Functions of Mobile App Engine:

On the touch-sensitive screen, it’s really easy to manage and control the apps. It also allows virtual buttons for easy control of the exciting games. Additionally, users can customize the virtual buttons that also support the use of auxiliary methods like a combo, smart casting, and sight.

Moving ahead, there is also a virtual location feature that allows users to set virtual location and navigations marks for some apps such as WeChat. Besides, there are also some additional functions that include screenshots, screen recording, file assistant, screen rotating, pin, vibration/silent, additional setting, and so on.

However, the feature doesn’t support background apps same as smartphones. It means if you want to use another application, you need to close the first one. Meanwhile, in the main interface of the Huawei App Engine, there is no such restriction, as it supports the multi-application split-screen operation. Now it’s time to check few images for a complete understanding.
