Although Microsoft and Micron announced earlier that they have a license from the US Department of Commerce, Google’s GMS is the key to Huawei’s smartphone business. Since Huawei cannot cooperate with Google now, it already has its own HMS ecosystem. The latest report shows that Huawei will focus on building its HMS ecosystem in 2020.
HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) was officially proposed at the HDC developer conference in August 2019. It is similar to Google’s GMS mobile service, but the overall function is more. It is a collection of Huawei terminal cloud service open capabilities, totaling 14 Services, including 9 basic services and 5 growth services. Developers only need to integrate the HMS SDK to use Huawei’s multiple open capabilities. This includes Huawei’s account, in-app payment, message push, and other capabilities.
In addition, HMS has functions that GMS does not have, such as Scan Kit, which supports the identification and analysis of 13 mainstream two-dimensional codes and barcodes worldwide. It also supports the detection and adaptive amplification of long-distance codes.
According to Huawei’s CEO, Yu Chengdong, the company will build the Huawei Terminal Cloud Service (HMS) this year. This service currently covers over 170 countries and regions around the world. It also has over 400 million monthly active users. Yu Chengdong emphasized that Huawei is unswervingly globalizing must give priority to solving foreign ecological problems.
