Since 2016, Huawei has been working on its own operating system, HarmonyOS, which promises to go head-to-head with Android and iOS from Google and Apple, respectively.
This week, the manufacturer released the system for the Mate 40 Pro Plus devices from China, where we were able to discover something very important.
The Harmony 2.0 system went into public testing this week. As a result, many users received a notification from Huawei to switch from Android to HarmonyOS.
Many users have not yet made the change, as they are concerned about possible problems. Anyone who was brave enough to update the device said fluency and daily use are normal. Some people even think that it is smoother than the Android system.
After switching to HarmonyOS, users found that many services on the original system, including Google services essential for Android, still work.
Huawei did not explain how this integration works, but from the images, it is possible to see the device running the Google Play Store, including updates to applications downloaded from the store.
