Petal Search offers search capabilities across more than 20 categories, including apps, news, videos, images, shopping, flights, and local business. It also develops and integrates various tools, such as weather, calculator, rate exchange and even paper query to help users easily obtain daily-used information.

Search results are presented in information cards, as opposed to simple web links, to help users get this wealth of useful information instantly with just a few clicks.

Leveraging Huawei devices’ AI capabilities, Petal Search allows users to search by taking photos or images through its visual search function. It recognizes a wide range of objects such as people, animals, and landmarks, and will introduce new capabilities such as plant identification.

Petal Maps is also equipped with cutting-edge functions to give real-time publish transit updates in some major cities, helping commuters better plan their routes and take the worry off traveling.

Thanks to HUAWEI Mate 40 Series devices’ Gesture Control, drivers are able to switch between the navigation view and map overview by simply using “air press” towards the screen with their palms.

HUAWEI Docs, available in more than 100 countries and regions, supports document viewing and editing across over 50 formats including PDF, PPT, and DOC. With real-time syncing enabled by cloud capabilities, HUAWEI Docs lets users seamlessly work on the same document on different devices logged into the same HUAWEI ID, enhancing the smart office experience.

Upgrade on Find Device enables users to locate their Huawei devices such as smartphones, watches, earphones, and glasses. Users can either play a ringtone remotely to help locate the devices or choose to lock and wipe devices information, protecting user privacy.

HUAWEI Themes introduced exclusive theme packs to enable deeper device personalization. The first batch of packs includes themes of famous artists, classic literature, and the Ingenuity series Huawei selected.

Supported by 2 million global developers, the Huawei Mobile Services ecosystem maintains a rapid growth.
