Huawei is a manufacturer that is strongly committed to software. In addition to having a layer of personalization such as EMUI, it also has several services and applications of its own that could unleash themselves on mobile phones of other brands. One of these services that at the moment is not available in Spain but is very interesting is Huawei Music, the music streaming service of the Chinese manufacturer.
Recently Huawei has expanded the availability of this service to five new markets, including the Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iraq and Jordan. Middle Eastern markets that join several of Africa. A list that Huawei is expected to expand progressively.
To promote this service, all users in the Middle East with EMUI 5.0 up to EMUI 8.1 will receive a notification advising of the availability of this new application. In addition, Huawei has teamed up with singer Elissa to create exclusive content.
Those interested in trying this music service without advertising can download the APK . In our case we have tested it on a Google Pixel and it works correctly. The app requires that we install the Huawei services to register.
Once installed Huawei Music we will see a music app with a design with white backgrounds, sections for the radio, the most popular and a tab for our profile. There we can choose various settings and also access the paid VIP version where Huawei Music will allow us to download the songs to listen offline.
At the moment the application is in English, being the majority of the content of Asian artists. From the search engine we can find western groups, but the reproduction has not worked correctly. Something expected since the service is not active in Spain.
Huawei Music seems an interesting alternative to Spotify and when it reaches more markets they can start to gain traction, especially considering that it could be pre-installed in Huawei’s mobiles.
