Huawei says the handling complement can opposition Google, Apple — though experts contend it competence be a struggle


Huawei’s HMS is identical to Google Mobile Services and offers developers kits that can be used to confederate things like plcae services into apps. The Chinese organisation pronounced there are 60,000 apps regulating supposed HMS Core services, though it did not mangle down what countries or regions those are in. 

Neil Shah, investigate executive during Counterpoint Research, called a series of apps “limited” and pronounced Huawei is still blank vital apps. 

“Outside of China, it will be onslaught as many of a marquee applications come from large form U.S. developers — Netflix, Facebook properties (Instagram, WhatsApp), Google apps, etc — that are apparently criminialized to combine with Huawei,” Shah said.

“So overall, but marquee developers on board, it’s going to be a tough sell.”

Indeed, a series of vital apps that are critical in general markets are not on Huawei’s app store, called a AppGallery. Users can't download any Google apps or Facebook-owned services. Netflix or Spotify are not accessible either. 

However, it does have a Amazon Shopping app, as good as video-sharing app TikTok, that is owned by Chinese organisation ByteDance. 

Huawei has voiced a enterprise to get Google apps onto a AppGallery.

“We wish Google services can be accessible by a AppGallery, only like how Google services are accessible by Apple’s App Store,” Eric Xu, rotating authority during Huawei pronounced in an talk with CNBC in March. 

But this will be a challenge, according to Ma. 

“Legal considerations aside, we find it rarely doubtful that Google would tell a possess apps into a AppGallery, as they have a same hooks into a services as third parties do. And if anything, they wish to expostulate use of their services,” he said.
