Hard work, Hongmeng system refuses GMS service, Google is in trouble this time

Since the beginning of 2019, Huawei’s Hongmeng system has been at the forefront. As the first truly domestic system in China, it is reasonable for Huawei to attract a lot of attention.

In addition, Huawei has also launched a 100-machine upgrade plan. Many old models have been adapted to the Hongmeng system. Pollen also has a very high evaluation of Hongmeng. Even many domestic mobile phone users of other brands are looking forward to one day being able to use it. Go to Hongmeng.

Microsoft, Samsung: Lessons from the Past

Although Hongmeng has a relatively high reputation from the outside world, after all, the system is just born. Facing the mature IOS and Android systems, it is definitely at a disadvantage in terms of market share and user volume.

Lao Wang believes that the most important thing for Huawei right now is to expand Hongmeng’s ecosystem, and the main thing to expand the ecosystem is to attract major developers to develop exclusive applications for Hongmeng.

Because for a system, ecology is more important than development.

From Microsoft’s WP to Samsung’s Tizen system, there was no software ecosystem support after development, which ultimately led to the demise of both systems.

Therefore, after learning from the mistakes of Microsoft and Samsung, Hongmeng has naturally become the object of concern for many people.

However, judging from Hongmeng’s underlying architecture, Huawei actually has certain advantages.

Relevant Huawei personnel once introduced that Huawei’s Hongmeng system adopts a distributed framework design, with one end developing and multiple ends deploying. Therefore, in terms of development efficiency, Hongmeng has unique advantages compared to Android.

Not only its underlying advantages, Huawei has also achieved certain results in terms of development speed.

According to relevant data, Huawei’s performance in the six months from June to the end of December last year exceeded most people’s expectations. In half a year, the cumulative number of users exceeded 100 million, which was faster than the popularity of IOS and Android. . So in the face of this speed, it would be false to say that Google is not worried.

In this regard, Google has also made two actions, all of which are to please developers.

First of all, Google launched a program called “Plya Media Experience Program”. Simply put, this program reduces Google’s commission on developers and encourages developers to develop one software for multiple devices. The purpose is actually to expand the hardware ecosystem of Android.

Google changes its tune and bows to Huawei?

Recently, Google has bowed its head again. We all know that there is a 30% “Apple tax” in Apple’s App Store, but in fact there is also a channel fee in the Android camp, such as Google’s Play Store, and the app stores that come with domestic manufacturers’ mobile phones also have channel commissions. And this time Google bowed its head again.

According to the news, Google has begun to change its tough attitude and will allow some applications to charge users directly in the future. Simply put, it will no longer force developers to use Google’s built-in payment channels.

The purpose of this is to greatly reduce the commission paid by developers to Google. Among them, Spotify, a well-known foreign music app, is the first software to enjoy this regulation. It is obvious that Google uses lower commission fees to attract developers.

In order to attract developers to HMS services, Huawei adopted a 9:1 sharing method to attract developers. After Hongmeng achieved a growth rate that exceeded expectations, Google was obviously a little bit unable to sit still and began to adopt various methods to fight.

As Google changes this charging rule, more developers will join in the future. Many foreign media also said that Google is really getting anxious this time.
