SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Huawei today announced new developments to Huawei Mobile Services ecosystem at 
the HUAWEI Mate 40 Series launch event, launching Petal Search, Petal Maps, and 
HUAWEI Docs, levelling up global Huawei users' digital experience with other 
new updates.

Hardware and software integration enhances digital lifestyle experience

Huawei's official search engine app, Petal Search now is available in over 170 
countries and regions and supports over 50 languages, letting users 
conveniently and instantly find out the information and services they need. 

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 user easily obtain daily-used 
information. With the new update, the search experience is now visually richer. 
Search results are presented in information cards, as opposed to simple 
weblinks, 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 recognises a 
wide range of objects such as people, animals, and landmarks, and will 
introduce new capabilities such as plants identification. For instance, user 
can simply take a photo of a dish and Petal Search will provide the recipe. A 
voice search feature is also integrated in the app, supporting English, 
Spanish, French, Arabic and more. These features help Petal Search meet the 
needs of users accustomed to an efficient and mobile-centric lifestyle.

In addition, with the cooperation with global and local partners, Petal Search 
is vigorously developing local life search services, to provide users a rich 
location-based and scenario-based search experience. When user look up for 
local life content, Petal Search provides users with high-quality and most 
popular localized information, such as personalized recommendations or nearby 
foods, worth visiting local attractions, and shopping discounts.

Petal Maps, meanwhile, is Huawei's quality and convenient mapping and 
navigational tool, offering positioning services, immersive map displays, place 
searches, driving navigation and favorite place lists  to users in over 140 
countries and regions. Petal Maps supports map displays in multiple languages, 
with voice notifications in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and 
Mandarin.

Petal Maps is also equipped with cutting-edge functions to give a real-time 
publish transit updates in some major cities, helping commuters better plan 
their routes and take the worry off travelling. Utilizing pioneering 
technologies such as Super GNSS and image recognition algorithms, Petal Maps 
further heighten the accuracy and present users the most efficient and least 
congested routes.

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. These smart interactions significantly 
enhance the ease of travel, as well as facilitate a safe driving experience.

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.
