Adstoppi Blog | Huawei says its Hongmeng OS isn't an Android replacement

Published by:


After a torrid few months, Huawei is now downplaying the idea that its homegrown Hongmeng operating system could serve as a drop-in replacement for Google’s Android on its smartphones. SVP Catherine Chen told reporters in Brussels yesterday that Hongmeng is not designed for smartphones and that Huawei plans to continue using Android, Chinese state news agency Xinhua reports.

This follows similar comments last week from chairman Liang Hua, who said in comments reported by TechNode that “[Huawei hasn’t] decided yet if the Hongmeng OS can be developed as a smartphone operating system in the future.” Liang says the system was designed as a low-latency solution for IoT devices, while Chen describes it as being “for industrial use.”

That’s a shift from Huawei’s previous messaging, which has suggested that the company was prepared to make a switch. “Huawei is in the process of potentially launching a replacement,” communications VP Andrew Williamson told Reuters in June, adding that it’d be ready “in months” in the event of an Android blacklisting. “It’s not something Huawei wants. We’re very happy being part of the Android family, but Hongmeng is being tested, mostly in China.” Consumer division CEO Richard Yu also said earlier this year that Huawei would be ready to use its alternatives.

The point may be moot, of course, if the US’ recent easing of trade restrictions on Huawei turn out to affect the company’s ability to deal with Google. But whatever the outcome there, it’s less clear than ever how ready Huawei would be to go it alone.

Torrent site The Pirate Bay has long been infamous for allowing people to download pirated movies and TV shows. But now, it looks like it's giving users a new option: streaming. For certain titles, a green play button appears next to the download buttons, which gives the option to "Play now using Baystream".

Apple will reportedly focus on overhauling the way it tests its iOS software. Bloomberg reports that Apple recently revealed changes internally that involve the company using software flags in daily builds of iOS in an attempt to stabilize future releases. The flags would allow Apple's own developers to include changes to beta versions of iOS 14 that internal testers could then switch on, allowing Apple to better isolate any bad code. It’s a process that Google, Microsoft, and many others have been using for years to isolate and test changes in Chromium, Windows, and other software products. Apple is overhauling the way it tests all of its software, including macOS updates, because iOS 13 has been a buggy mess since its introduction in September. Apple has released eight updates to iOS...
