Huawei terminal held an online conference today to launch its flagship new mobile phone of the year Huawei matexs and a series of new products.Compared with the few hardware products left in suspense, Huawei announced that the launch of HMS mobile service was the climax of the conference. I believe that many users are unfamiliar with the concept of HMS, so this article will give you a general introduction.
What is HMS?
Huawei HMS is the abbreviation of Huawei mobile service, which means Huawei mobile service in Chinese.
First of all, we need to know that domestic users can hardly use GMS, but it is very important to use GMS overseas. If GMS is not supported, it will be difficult to move forward. Without GMS authorization, it means that the mobile phone cannot be pre installed with Google's applications, such as Google search, Google browser, youtube, maps, and these services and applications cannot be used. This will seriously affect sales in overseas markets.
For example, without GMS, domestic users can't use software like Baidu, WeChat, micro-blog and Alipay.
Therefore, it is obviously very important to have its own ecology. Therefore, the launch of HMS is of great significance to Huawei mobile phones.
In September 2019, when Huawei released its new flagship mobile phone mate30 Series in Munich, Germany, it was unable to use Google's GMS service. At that time, Yu Chengdong said that Huawei would provide its own mobile service HMS.
However, HMS has a long way to go in order to fully replace GMS. This is the same as Hongmeng system, which needs to build ecology in the future, so "HMS" ecology is the key.
Release HMS ecology to the world
At the 2019 Huawei developer conference, Huawei released HMS ecology to the world for the first time. Huawei announced that it would fully open core HMS services, build ecology together with developers, and jointly bring the whole scene intelligent experience to Huawei end users around the world.
Huawei Developers Conference 2019
Huawei opens 14 HMS core capabilities, 51 services, and 885 APIs to provide developers with full scenario capability opening. Developers only need to integrate HMS SDK to use Huawei's multiple open capabilities, so that developers can focus on innovation. These capabilities and services will help developers get more users and higher activeness in their applications.
HMS Core provides a series of new functions for developers around the world, among which Huawei map service provides developers with 6 categories and 25 API interfaces, covering more than 150 countries and regions around the world, supporting more than 40 languages, helping developers around the world to achieve personalized map presentation and interaction; unified code scanning service can support identification of collection code, account login code, shared bike code, order code, express code Billing code and other codes, one-step service direct application, fast application, fast service and so on.
Not only that, the original functions of HMS also provide service support for developers, enabling them from development, growth to profitability. With the one-time access of Huawei account, users can log in to mobile phones, tablets, PCs, watches, large screens, car machines and other multiple terminals, covering more than 170 countries and regions around the world; push service provides developers with reliable message push channels, which can be pushed according to different scenarios, supporting text, corner signs, ringing tones, large pictures in various forms, with a arrival rate of 99%.
It can be said that the Huawei Developers Conference in 2019 is a milestone for the development of HMS.
HMS goes overseas for the first time
Although Huawei has talked about HMS service architecture at last year's developer conference, today is the first time that Huawei has announced that HMS will go overseas.
Back in today's launch,Huawei released hms core 4.0 back in january, hoping to add more developers around the world to the hms ecosystem. Mr Yu has said the Huawei will do its utmost to create a HMS ecology in 2020 and form a new system of "self-research chip Hongmeng OS ".
HMS goes overseas for the first time
At this press conference, Yu Chengdong once again mentioned that at present, the monthly active users of Huawei's application market have exceeded 400 million. More and more developers can use the developer kit in HMS core 4.0 to make their applications use of Huawei's various open capabilities, including file mutual transfer, geographic location, security detection, AI, machine learning and data security.
Yu also announced today the launch of the $1 billion "Yaoxing" program to attract and call on global developers to develop apps at the core of HMS. With Huawei's cooperation with more countries and regions, HMS will undoubtedly get greater development.
