Huawei HMS is the abbreviation of Huawei mobile service, which means Huawei mobile service in Chinese.
In short, HMS is used to provide basic services for mobile phones, such as cloud space, application market, payment wallet, etc. Corresponding to HMS is Googles GMS, which is called Google Mobile Service in full.
Without GMS authorization, it means that the mobile phone cannot be pre installed with Googles 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.
At the 2019 Huawei developer conference, Huawei launched the HMS ecosystem globally for the first time. In January this year, Huawei released HMS core 4.0, hoping to let more developers from all over the world join in the construction of HMS ecosystem.
At the P40 series mobile phone conference in March this year, Huawei announced that the P40 series mobile phone will be equipped with its own HMS service and app Gallery app store instead of Googles GMS and play store, which is the first time Huawei has fully used its own service on its flagship machine.
