What are Google Mobile Services and Huawei AppGallery?
Huawei Mate XS

Google Mobile Services:

Google Mobile Services (GMS) are the apps by Google that often come pre-installed on Android phones.

An Android phone manufacturer has to get a license from Google to pre-install Google Mobile Services on their handsets.

Huawei doesn’t currently have a licence to use Google Mobile Services which includes apps such as Google Maps, YouTube, Gmail and the Google Play Store itself.

Huawei AppGallery:

Huawei AppGallery is Huawei’s official app distribution platform. You can use AppGallery on your Huawei phone to search, download, manage, and share mobile apps. AppGallery features 4-layer detection to make sure that all apps are safe to download and use.

You’ll need to create or enter a valid Huawei ID when you get your new device to access AppGallery. When you log in, you’ll get access to 5GB of free cloud storage. Huawei Mate Xs 5G customers will receive a complimentary upgrade to a 50GB storage plan for the first year.
