Since Huawei is still under a ban from the USA, many points regarding software are still not easy. With the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), the group already offers its own solution to the Google Play problem, but many apps from the stores are also missing. The Chinese top manufacturer wants to close a very important gap with Huawei Music. The music streaming service is now also available in Europe and also surprises with its own functions.
Huawei Music with party mode and a large music library
The Huawei Blog has already tried the app extensively and has already written some thoughts about it. So the app should already bring a large selection of music with it, even if services such as Apple Music or Spotify should continue to offer more material. The range of functions is of course very similar. No matter whether creating playlists or downloading music to enjoy offline. In principle, everything is included, which the big names in the industry also offer.
In addition, there are also a few functions specially developed by Huawei. Fans of customization will be happy to be able to choose different designs. The community is also involved, similar to the Themes shops on Android smartphones. There is also a party mode that lets music run through a “mixer” for special occasions. You don’t have to worry about much anymore.
The price is also on the level of Spotify or Apple Music. Huawei Music costs exactly 9.99 euros a month (unfortunately I don’t have Swiss prices at the moment) and is therefore on par with the competition.

Here you would have to improve significantly and maybe also integrate PayPal or other payment options. There is also currently no support for desktop PCs. So far, the app is only available for Android smartphones.
Huawei Music is said to compete with other services such as Apple Music and Spotify.
Huawei Music already available in Europe
If you want, you can already download the new Huawei Music App onto your smartphone. However, this requires the Huawei App Gallery or Huawei Mobile Services. A Huawei ID, i.e. an account with the Chinese manufacturer, is also required for use. Of course, you won’t find the app in the Play Store. It remains to be seen whether it will ever appear there. We do not initially assume.
But Android wouldn’t be Android if you couldn’t “sideload” the app. The manufacturer offers
