Huawei hopes to have Google apps in AppGallery

Last year, Chinese telecommunication giant Huawei was placed into the “entity list” by the U.S. Department of Commence. As such, Huawei’s access to the U.S. supply chain will be restricted, unless the companies are able to obtain special licenses for trading with Huawei.

This is the main reason why we no longer see Google Mobile Services (GMS) among recent Huawei smartphones including it’s Mate 30 and P40 flagship devices.

To overcome the lack of Google services, Huawei has developed their own proprietary Huawei Mobile Service (HMS), and had even came out with a Play store alternative known as AppGallery.

Although much progress has been made in this aspect, but the company remain hopeful that Google services will one day be available within it’s own AppGallery.

“We hope Google services can be available through our AppGallery, just like how Google services are available through Apple’s App Store,” Huawei’s rotating chairman Eric Xu told CNBC.

However, this is unlikely to be viable due to the possible legal restrictions which accompany the trade ban.
