Huawei, the known Chinese tech giant, is currently testing AppSearch. It is a new software the company has developed and will seek to aid users in finding popular cameraphone apps without using Google’s Play Store service.
For these unaware, Huawei was hit with a trade ban by the US Commerce Department back in 2019. The company had been placed on the ‘Entity List’ and was deemed a risk to national security. Hence, Huawei was banned from buying or collaborating products or services with another US based companies. This bundled firms as Google, and with the search giant being barred from working with the Chinese company, Huawei lost the official Google service and Android support like nicely.
Due to the fact then, Huawei has introduced phones with Android Operation system, however these absence the Google Mobile service and are the vanilla version. Google’s Play Store is the most popular app gallery service in Android so it would be a perfect obstacle for Huawei and its large user base. Hence, the manufacturer had previously noted and launched its Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) and is presently looking to further expand its software portfolio through the AppSearch.
Like of right currently, the AppGallery is the formal app store from Huawei that lets users download programs. Sadly, this now lacks numerous well known applications and does not have the similar number of apps that Google’s Play Store’s vast collection stores. This is in which the AppSearch arrives in, allowing users to find and download such well known APKs. Users had to first rely on another third party programs stores as Amazon or Aptioide, but this might potentially liven up its software database.
AppSearch is now being tested in Germany and is publically out there on the formal Huawei Germany website. As claimed by to the formal summary, the software plans to help users discover their favorite applications for Huawei smartphones with the HMS. The well known applications that could now be found include things like Facebook, WhatsApp and plenty of more. It is available for the Mate 30 series, P40 series, and even the Mate Xs.
