At last week’s Launch Of the P40 series, Huawei announced that the P40 series phones would be equipped with its own HMS service and App Gallery app, without Google’s GMS and Play stores, the first time Huawei has fully used its own service on its flagship. But Yu Chengdong, CEO of Consumer Business Terminals, said in an interview that Huawei still wants to work with Google to launch the Play Store.
In an interview with Wired magazine, Mr Yu said of his relationship with Google, saying: ‘In the past we have brought huge revenues and profits to Us companies like Google, and we have always been good partners. That’s why we still want to continue working with Google and get permission from the U.S. government.
‘We want to use all of Google’s services and make the Google App Store Play Store a major part of Huawei’s Mobile Services (HMS) to give users more choices, ‘ Mr. Yu said. We want to stay on Android Android.
But Mr Yu also said Huawei would continue to develop its own services and app stores, saying HMS and AppGallery were growing rapidly and getting better and better.
There are more and more popular apps in the AppGallery App Store, but there are certainly some gaps that will take time to resolve, and he expects Huawei to take a year or two.
