Huawei wants Google apps on its own App Store


Resilience and innovation are the weapons that the Chinese company has used masterfully. Devices like the Huawei P40 Lite and P40 Pro are extraordinary, but without Google’s apps and services, they leave users wondering when it’s time to buy their next smartphone.

Huawei continues to face Donald Trump’s veto, which prevents it from working with companies like Google. Resilience and innovation are the weapons that the Chinese company has used masterfully.

Devices like the Huawei P40 Lite and P40 Pro are extraordinary, but without Google’s apps and services, they leave users wondering when it’s time to buy their next smartphone. Although it is possible to install Google applications on the new Huawei, as already explained here.

Huawei has been thinking of a new plan, and that is for Google’s applications to end up in its own store.

Google Apps on AppGallery, this is Huawei’s new strategy

Today, the best smartphones from the Chinese company no longer have Google applications or services (from factory), and this is undoubtedly a setback for the company, as they are excellent devices, or otherwise would crush the competition.

If Huawei is not able to resume licensing Google Play services soon, a possible alternative is for these devices to bring Google services available at AppGallery, Huawei’s application store.

Eric Xu, manager of Huawei, confirmed to CNBC the following statement:

In recent days, we’ve seen similar Google deals with Samsung, which have started to translate into some of the Google apps appearing on the Galaxy Apps store, the Samsung mobile app store.

This appears to be Google’s way of preventing Android and the ecosystem that Samsung is part of but also Huawei from collapsing.

Whether they will or not is still unknown. Huawei has already confirmed that there were possibilities that applications like Facebook could reach the store, this chess game is going to last.

Everything may be resolved soon, but for now, it seems a very distant reality, at least as long as Donald Trump continues his trade war against Huawei.
