HMS Core 4.0 Helps Developers Around the Globe Create an All-Scenario Smart Experience for Users
BARCELONA, Feb. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Today, Huawei held a Consumer Business Product and Strategy Virtual Launch 
event in Barcelona. At this event, Mr. Yu Chengdong (Richard Yu), CEO of 
Huawei's Consumer BG, showcased HMS Core 4.0, a collection of open capabilities 
provided by HUAWEI Mobile Services. Once these capabilities are integrated into 
apps, they will help developers attract more users, increase user engagement, 
and achieve business success faster than expected by distributing their apps 
globally to all devices in all scenarios. In this way, developers can focus on 
innovations and deliver an all-scenario smart living experience to all Huawei 
device users.

Richard Yu illustrated the range of impressive services of HMS Core 4.0 at this 
event, one of which is ML Kit. It provides a host of capabilities such as face 
detection, text recognition, object detection and tracking, image 
classification, and landmark recognition, which can be chosen based on the 
user's requirements. With the face detection capability, ML Kit is able to 
detect seven facial expressions, identify three facial features, and obtain the 
contour of a detected face from 845 points. Once integrated with ML Kit, an app 
will be able to extend smart connectivity to every part of a user's day-to-day 
life, making it possible to read text in images and streams in multiple 
languages, scan a landmark building and share it with others, and use a face 
beautification app for editing photos.

Another noteworthy service in HMS Core 4.0 is Scan Kit. It is capable of 
identifying 13 types of commonly used 1D and 2D barcodes. When detecting a 
barcode from a distance, Scan Kit first magnifies the barcode before scanning 
it, and is also able to scan a small barcode in the same way. Regardless of the 
way that a barcode is oriented, Scan Kit can still quickly and correctly 
identify it. Furthermore, it accurately scans barcodes even in the most 
challenging scenarios, such as when the barcode image is damaged or distorted.

In terms of the all-scenario smart life in the future, Richard Yu introduced 
the Safety Detect service. It quickly checks whether an app poses any risks to 
the user's device system through rooting, unlocking, or privilege escalation, 
then determines whether the app's operations will be affected. Safety Detect 
defends the user from any threats to their personal privacy and bank accounts 
during network connections.

HUAWEI Map Kit, Site Kit, and Location Kit jointly provide optimal 
location-based services (LBSs) to help global developers build interactive and 
personalized map capabilities.

HMS Core 4.0 was officially launched on January 15, 2020. Some of its services 
have been updated and some are new. Account Kit, In-App Purchases (IAP), 
Analytics Kit, Drive Kit, Game Service, and Push Kit have all been long-running 
services and were updated in this version. Ads Kit, Map Kit, and Location Kit 
were unveiled four months ago and also updated. Other services are newly 
developed, including ML Kit, Awareness Kit, Scan Kit, Nearby Service, Panorama 
Kit, Safety Detect, Dynamic Tag Manager (DTM), Fast Identity Online (FIDO), 
Site Kit, Quick App, WisePlay DRM, Health Kit, and Identity Kit. Some services 
in HMS Core 4.0 offer new features that integrate Huawei's chip-device-cloud 
capabilities. Currently, Huawei has more than 1.3 million registered developers 
and more than 55,000 apps connected to HMS Core worldwide. With the 
acceleration of its comprehensive openness and the increase in innovation 
capabilities, the numbers will continue to grow in the future.

Huawei has always adhered to its commitment to TECH4ALL. Through the on-going 
openness of the HMS ecosystem, Huawei has cooperated extensively with 
governments, industries, and communities to enable the development of local 
industries, promote the innovation of small- and medium-sized enterprises, and 
continuously bring innovative digital services to global consumers, creating 
greater social value.
