Meta-services can increase the partner’s user conversion rate by hundreds of times compared to the traditional model. At the same time, HarmonyOS will bring 1 billion + hardware portals to application partners through the growing 1+8+N full scenario ecosystem + System-level portals and massive App portals.
With the integration of user portraits, precise scene perception, unified global partners to achieve more precise service distribution. Furthermore, the distributed HarmonyOS application framework, distributed UI framework, DevEco Studio also make developers’ development easier.
More importantly, the distributed HarmonyOS application framework, distributed UI framework, DevEco Studio also create a more friendly environment for the developers to create their apps and ideas.
It revealed that the newly upgraded integrated development tool DevEco Studio 2.1 Beta 3 has opened 36 sets of project templates, covering high-frequency scenes such as news and shopping, and can realize cross-device interface and two-way code preview, simulation is infinitely close to the real machine, allowing developers to cross the efficiency of device development and commissioning is greatly improved.
200 million USD investment in Ecosystem Development:
At the pre-communication meeting of the Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) Cloud 2021, Huawei announced that it will invest 220 million USD to support developers and expected to grow their numbers up to 3 million.

Huawei HarmonyOS is better than Apple!
Yes, that’s right! Huawei’s self-developed operating system – Harmony is far better than Apple’s. Comparatively, HarmonyOS serves many gadgets, including smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, smart TVs, smart cars, and more.
Meanwhile, Apple uses a separate operating system for every smart device. For instance, iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and so on. This shows that HarmonyOS is quite efficient and is easily compatible with a variety of gadgets.
Moreover, Huawei is constantly making efforts to make the respective operating system bigger than Android and iOS. And it seems like we don’t have to wait much to catch such changes in the HarmonyOS ecosystem.
