China’s controversial Huawei wants to kill off Microsoft Office and Google Docs for good

Huawei Docs

Huawei has announced that it is entering the world of office productivity software.

The announcement of Huawei Docs, which contains the likes of Document, Spreadsheet and Presentation, aims to serve as alternatives to Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint respectively.

Huawei Docs is available to users of Huawei Mate 40 devices based in more than 100 countries and supports document editing across 50-plus formats.

Real-time syncing through Huawei Drive also means users can make changes to the same documents across multiple devices using their Huawei ID.

The launch marks Huawei’s first foray into the world of office software suites and could propel the Chinese smartphone maker to even higher sales figures.

Although the firm holds top spot for global sales, it has struggled in the west partly because its phones cannot run Google software.

If well-received, Huawei Docs may help plug this gap.

More announcements

The Huawei Docs announcement came at the Huawei Mate 40 Series smartphone launch event and was accompanied by a number of other interesting additions to the Huawei Mobile Services ecosystem.

Huawei also announced an update to its own official search engine app, Petal Search, which is available in over 170 countries.

Results are also now available in a visually richer format, presented as information cards rather than weblinks. Visual and voice search functionality, both supported by Huawei’s AI capabilities, make for a more holistic search experience.

Finally, Petal Maps represents Huawei’s attempt to enter the navigation app market, offering map displays, driving routes and favorite place lists for users in more than 140 countries.

Real-time public transport information is also available in some major cities and ‘air press’ gestures enable drivers to switch between navigation and map modes safely and conveniently.

About chankaiyee2

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.

  1. Because a company wants to produce a competing product doesn’t mean it wants to ”KILL OFF Microsoft Office and Google Docs FOR GOOD”. Your headline betrays you are just part of the billion dollar US racist war on China. Do you get a good salary?
