Huawei forces its smartwatch users to download its own smartphone app store

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — A number of users said that Huawei is forcing them, owners of smart watches of the brand, to download their own app store for smartphones AppGallery.

So, according to them, they were faced with the fact that the proprietary application Huawei Health simply refuses to work, notifying that the user needs to download the latest version of Huawei Mobile Services. At the same time, the source for the download is indicated on the Google Play Store, namely that the AppGallery from Huawei.

The fact that the owners of smart watches must update their devices through the proprietary application store Huawei was confirmed by the official technical support of the company. There, users were told that the problem of broken Huawei Health is known and to solve it, it is really necessary to download Huawei Mobile Services from AppGallery.

At the moment, it is not completely clear why this compulsion on the part of the Chinese techno giant is related. Either the company intends to “accustom” its users to its own application store in such a tough way, or in the near future Google may remove the necessary Huawei services for the operation of smart devices.
