Huawei is helping developers to easily turn GMS apps into HMS apps


Huawei’s new telephones all need Google Mobile Services (GMS). Constraining the Chinese maker to think of its own Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) suite as another option. One result is that applications with GMS coordination (for example utilizing Google administrations for notices, planning, area and so forth). Either don’t work as expected or at all on these new  gadgets.


Presently, Huawei has declared the accessibility of an open-source arrangement called Decision SDK. This arrangement basically transforms existing GMS applications into HMS applications. Saving application engineers time and assets.

According to the SDK’s GitHub page. The solution currently supports features like location.  (Raiffeisen Bank) accessible to Huawei gadget clients. Yet engineer BlueSource adds that Austria’s public television telecaster, rail line administration, postal help. And a neighborhood bargains app has all pre-owned this answer for bringing their apps to Huawei’s AppGallery.n, analytics, maps, and messaging.

The SDK was originally developed to help make an Austrian bank app (Raiffeisen Bank). Available to Huawei device users. But developer BlueSource adds that Austria’s national TV broadcaster, railway service, postal service. And a local deals app have all used this solution to bring their apps to Huawei’s AppGallery.

It’s a rather interesting and nifty approach to the issue of GMS apps working on Huawei devices, and should theoretically mean less development work for studios.

It doesn’t seem like a one-click process though, so there’s still some measure of work that needs to be done by developers. In any event, Huawei and BlueSource told that developers can deliver HMS support twice as fast using this tool compared to standard methods of enabling HMS in an app.

It doesn’t sound like end-users can convert their favorite GMS-enabled apps to run on Huawei’s HMS devices though. Still, this is a welcome development as the US trade ban against Huawei doesn’t look like it will end soon.

Stay Tuned. Hope to catch you in the next one. Peace out to you.
