Huawei map service

Huawei continues to expand its services. After the operating system, the Chinese tech giant is working on its own map service.

In fact, Huawei still can’t use Google Maps on foreign phones. Well, this is where the Huawei map application called Map Kit comes into play.

Map Kit is not for direct users, but functions as an API that third-party developers can use to create navigation software.

Map Kit can collect information from 150 countries and regions around the world. Although Huawei is a newcomer to the mapping industry, its telecom base stations in 160 countries will help it build networks quickly and easily.

CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group Richard Yu said the Map Kit can support several advanced features. For example, car replacement lane, directions, and mapping augmented reality, as well as real-time traffic information.

Interestingly, the Map Kit will be available in 40 languages, which can help increase its popularity. According to sources familiar with the issue, US-based mapping and internet service providers Yandex and Booking Holding will be the first partners interested in Huawei map services.
