Although Huawei's smartphones began to encounter headwinds in 2018 when Google GMS stopped licensing, Huawei announced that it would invest heavily in supporting HMS ecology and invite developers to settle in by way of incentives and subsidies. Huawei seems to have entered the deep-water area of adversity, but HMS has made certain achievements with its efforts.
According to the public speech of Zhang Ping An, President of Huawei's consumer business cloud service, at the Huawei 2020 full connection conference, the number of registered developers of Huawei's HMS ecology has reached 1.8 million, and the number of applications integrating HMS core has reached 96000 in the world. HMS ecology has become the third largest mobile application ecology in the world.
What is HMS? Simply speaking, it is the capabilities and services Huawei provides to developers and consumers. HMS core opens Huawei's capabilities for developers to use; HMS connect gathers partner's applications and services on Huawei's platform and distributes them to users; HMS apps such as Huawei's browser and apps of third-party partners provide services for users. HMS, HMS and apps are the third part.
Among them, HMS core provides open software and hardware and cloud side core service capabilities, which is the combination of Huawei's HMS open capabilities. At the same time, it will make the development of these applications more active and efficient, and help developers get more efficient and innovative.
A long march
At the full connection conference, Zhang Ping'an, President of cloud services for Huawei's consumer business, made it clear that there are still 700 million users behind Huawei, and they can still provide innovative services for 700 million users through HMS and Hongmeng operating system.
In addition, the current situation will not slow down their pace, but will strengthen Huawei's determination to build HMS ecology. All of Huawei's ecological digital services and ecological platform systems will eventually be open to global users. In another dimension, Huawei HMS is also cooperating with other platforms, trying not to let developers switch back and forth between different platforms.
Zhang Ping'an mentioned that Huawei's HMS ecological comprehensive opening-up capability has been enabled in the fields of finance, government affairs, education, enterprises, culture and tourism, commerce, etc. In addition, HMS core 5.0 has been officially launched in the world, covering application services, graphics, artificial intelligence, media, systems, security, intelligent terminals and other seven fields.
For example, in finance, Huawei has continued to create mobile digital financial experience centered on mobile phones, and constantly launched mobile phone shield, mobile POS, smart flash card, Huawei card and other achievements through Huawei wallet. In terms of digital currency, Huawei is cooperating with the central bank and other institutions to provide technical support. In the future, Huawei can provide consumers with the wallet capability of mobile digital currency.
In terms of government affairs, Huawei City Service provides users with one-stop government affairs, covering six categories and more than 30 high-frequency government services, such as living expenses, medical and health services, and entry-exit services. It is a convenient service platform jointly built by Huawei and local government agencies. In the future, users can access any link of the national government ecosystem through a Huawei account, and can use local citizen services anytime and anywhere.
In the field of education and office, link now, the global online education and work collaboration platform launched by Huawei, provides instant communication, collaborative office, and distance learning services. In office scenarios, users can call at any time through clients, communicate with colleagues and customers around the world in real time. The functions of third-party document editing, notes, task collaboration and other functions help online meetings to be carried out efficiently.
In addition, Zhang Ping'an has also given examples to the practice of enterprises, cultural tourism and commerce.
