Huawei has added HERE WeGo maps to the AppGallery as an alternative to Google Maps.
It’s been a year since the U.S. Government placed specific restrictions on Huawei, preventing it from engaging commercially with any U.S.-based company. Google was also forced to revoke Huawei’s license to use Android. Therefore, new Huawei and Honor phones or tablets are shipped without Google Mobile Services and cannot run Google apps like Search, Maps, Gmail, etc. and the Google Play Store.
Huawei's AppGallery is as an alternative to the Google Play Store. And recently, the Chinese company has added HERE WeGo maps to the AppGallery as an alternative to Google Maps.
The software had been evolved through various iterations, including OVI and then Nokia Maps, focusing on Symbian and then Windows phones. The platform was later sold to a number of auto manufacturers, including Audi and BMW to power in-car navigation.
HERE WeGo is designed to deliver navigation services, along with offline options. The app is currently available for free download on Huawei's AppGallery.
