Huawei to remove Android app support in HarmonyOS Next

Huawei seems to be planning to remove the support of Android applications from their devices in the next HarmonyOS.

Huawei Harmonyos

Ever since 2019, the United States has banned Huawei in their country which made Google apps not work in their devices. Fast forward to today, it appears that the next HarmonyOS update will not support apps made for Android with the HarmonyOS Next.

Announced back in August in the Huawei Developers Conference 2023, Huawei has announced the HarmonyOS Next which is planning to be released on Q1 of 2024.

The HarmonyOS Next will only support their HAP installation package instead of the Android Package or APK made by Android.

This means that users may not see their usual applications on the Huawei AppGallery as companies will be developing apps to support HarmonyOS Next.

There’s no news whether this would affect users outside of China.

    Seems promising since it’s backed by the Chinese government, I know Android monitor their users, but I’d rather have them sell our data than be monitored by the Chinese gov., China is a bully and Huawei will be used to bully us further into submission from our territorial claims. Hope ASEAN bans this company completely.
