Huawei phones over the past two years all lack Google Mobile Services (GMS) due to US sanctions. As a result, the company is developing its own suite of software called Huawei Mobile Services (HMS). A solution has now been found that allows developers to offer their Google applications compatible with HMS tools for Huawei handsets.
Huawei today unveiled a new open source tool called the Choice SDK. This solution essentially converts existing GMS applications into HMS applications to save developers time and resources. According to the information The SDHP page of this SDKIn this way, support for features such as positioning, logging in, receiving statistical and analytical information, maps and messaging can be achieved.
The Choice SDK was originally created with the aim of launching an application for an Austrian bank called Raiffeisen Bank for users of Huawei products. But its developer, BlueSource, says National Television, the railways, the post office and an Austrian trading service have also used the SDK to launch their apps on the Huawei Gallery app.
This approach is very interesting for solving the problem of GMS apps working on Huawei products and theoretically reduces the work of developing application development studios. Of course, this is not easy to do with one click, and there is still work to be done by developers to get the apps working properly.
However, Huawei and BlueSource say that with the help of this tool, developers can get support for HMS twice as fast. Of course, the first and most important step is for developers to be willing to do this. If they welcome the Choice SDK, Huawei may be able to address some of its app supply problems and have a better chance of competing with Google’s mobile services.
