One of the biggest problems Huawei phones face is undoubtedly the lack of access to the Google Play Store . Although Huawei is struggling to overcome this, there are many obstacles to it. But the company’s new move could be a solution for popular Play Store apps. Huawei is testing AppSearch , which does not require direct access to the Play Store.
Huawei launched Huawei Mobile Services , HMS, as an alternative to Google Mobile Services (GMS) to reduce its commitment to Google . With AppSearch, users do not need an APK file to install popular apps on their phone with HMS. AppSearch is a temporary bridge for Huawei to provide users with access to essential services and apps. in; The application, which includes applications such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, YouTube and Spotify as a link, acts as a search engine. Thanks to this tool, Huawei offers APK files of applications from different sources. The improvement that was originally detected by the German Huawei site. With the AppSearch app, you can download popular apps from sources like APKMirror.
In the application, which is said to have a familiar layout by the 9to5Google editor, you encounter the category of “Popular applications”. You can also search from A to Z and enter categories. Huawei makes it clear that it does not actually contain content directly. Therefore, it does not have a problem with licensing and blocking. So AppSearch works as a portal to download third-party apps.
XDA has reviewed the AppSearch APK file and found that it may have regional links for applications in some countries. Those countries; Austria, Canada, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, the Netherlands, Sweden, the UK and even the USA. AppSearch can be a temporary solution for Huawei devices without Google Play Store until more developers switch to AppGallery.
