Ten months ago, the US government imposed sanctions on Huawei, barring it from doing business with American businesses. The strongest impact on the Chinese was the restriction on the use of Google services, without which, it seemed, the company's branded smartphones would no longer be of any interest to users. However, Huawei has managed to develop an alternative to many of the search giant's services, from the AppGallery app store to its own voice assistant. But how does the company's management feel about the idea of renewing cooperation with Google? The CEO answers.
Google seems to need Huawei more than the other way around
Huawei is hoping that the US will give it a license to cooperate with Google and other companies, said the head of the consumer sector Huawei Richard Y. According to him, this is primarily important for American enterprises, which trite will be able to start making more money thanks to Huawei. Still, the audience of smartphones of the Chinese brand is quite extensive to neglect it and refuse service, especially since Huawei does not mind at all to get on the old rails, although it has a backup development plan.
Will Google Play return to smartphones Huawei
Celia is a new voice assistant Huawei. He's pretty good
Resuming cooperation with us is in the interests of American companies. We want to use all Google services on our smartphones and Google Play as our main app store. Moreover, we want to stay on the platform Android. However, if we cannot obtain a license, we will think about entering into partnerships with other companies. For now we are delaying this moment, but we can hardly do it indefinitely. Now we simply do not want to devalue cooperation with companies from the United States, – said Yu.
Despite the fact that Huawei is still waiting for the US to lift or at least ease the sanctions and allow it to cooperate with Google, the Chinese have already accumulated enough of their own services. The current situation has forced the company to strongly revise its principles. As a result, such services entered the world market that were planned to be left exclusive to the Chinese market. In particular, it is the voice assistant Celia, which Huawei is very proud of. In less than a year, the company's developers have taught him English, French and Spanish and continue to teach new ones. Therefore, in the near future Celia will launch in new countries.
Why is Huawei better than Apple
Huawei integrated laptops and smartphones so deeply with each other that they almost became one
In fact Huawei is not limited only to the development and improvement of their services, which will replace Google services. The company goes further and wants to do something new, inaccessible to the search giant. One of the great achievements Huawei can be safely considered the ecosystem that she built by combining the functionality of her branded devices. The result is something completely unimaginable and unattainable for other manufacturers. That only is the ability to access files on a computer from a smartphone without downloading, and modify them remotely. Even Apple doesn't have that, let alone Google.
I really like the approach Huawei and would even like the US not to license her to cooperate with Google, because then we can all see how the company develops, which was deprived of the services that make up the basis Android. After all, if Gmail, Google Maps or Google Duo are not services for everyone and you can easily do without them, then many cannot imagine life without Google Play, and Huawei will have to pave this path alone. It will be all the more interesting to observe the successes and failures of the company on the way to absolute autonomy and gaining independence from the search giant.
