Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has had its fair share of troubles owing to its recent ban on the usage of Google Play Services on its devices. The brand has since been trying to cope with the impact of the ban and has gradually been transitioning to its own Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) platform, which would enable the developers to create a sustainable ecosystem. The company recently partnered with Squid to provide news for Huawei devices without having to rely on Google Mobile Services. It has now made the Huawei Music streaming service available in Europe. Take a look.
Huawei Music Streaming Service Launched in Europe
As per the report, the Huawei Music app is already available in Europe and it supports multiple languages. The content might not be as thick as the popular streaming apps like Spotify (for now), but it is sufficient enough for the company to at least begin with. In case you are unaware, the music service was announced for the European countries back in 2018, but it’s only now that Huawei has made it active. The addition of the Huawei Music streaming service has made the company one step closer to being independent from Google.
If you want to download Huawei Music app in Europe, you can download the same from the Huawei AppGallery. The app will come pre-installed with the Huawei/Honor device and one can use it as it is, but in case you own an Android smartphone from other manufacturers, you can still enjoy Huawei Music on your device by downloading it from the official website (link). If you want to make use of the Huawei Music streaming service, downloading the app and signing up would be the only hassle you would need to go through. If you don’t want to use the streaming service, you can turn that off and play locally stored music files via the Huawei Music app.
To make you a little bit familiar with the app, the Huawei Music app lets you stream music. Well, that’s kind of the basic intent, but in addition to it, you can create your own playlists, download music for offline playback, listen to radio stations, and enjoy various custom modes with the Huawei Music app. As far as the cost of the Huawei Music streaming service is concerned, the streaming service will cost you €9.99 per month.
Meanwhile, Huawei is set to launch its upcoming Huawei P40 series of smartphones in China on March 26, 2020. The Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro smartphones have been in the news for quite a while now and it’s only a matter of time before the company officially launches its brand new series.
