Huawei has introduced the Huawei Assistant for Android smartphones a few months ago, the new app is similar to Google app. Now, for the first time, an early trial version of the new app is available and you can install it on your device and try it out. The Huawei Assistant offers us four key points, which should keep users up to date at all times.
- Global search for contacts, apps, emails, etc.
- Quick access to features of your choice
- Display of appointments, weather, missed calls, etc.
- Newsfeed for quick overview of current news
You see, Huawei wants to cover first and foremost what the Google apps already offer. In addition, such applications help to expand their own ecosystem and to bind users to themselves. The smartphone manufacturers get a little more freedom through their own offers on top.
Anyone who has a recent smartphone from Huawei or Honor with at least EMUI 9.1 can download the Huawei Assistant. If you submit feedback for the app, you can even win a Huawei P30 Pro. Everything else can be found behind this link.
