Over 4 million developers have joined up for Huawei’s HarmonyOS, which already offers 134,000 apps

Huawei announced that over 4 million developers have signed on to build on the Harmony platform and that there are already 134,000 apps using HMS Core. HMS Core itself keeps evolving and yesterday’s event saw the launch of version 6.0 with extended support for Huawei’s cloud services.

Eligible devices that migrate to HarmonyOS 2.0 will retain apps and data (the exception being apps that rely on Google Play Services). With backwards compatibility covered, Huawei is looking forward to the future when HarmonyOS will run its own apps instead ones designed for Android.

To increase those numbers company launched the Huawei HMS Global Application Innovation Competition 2021 that invites developers to create innovative new apps based around HMS Core (HMS being the Huawei Mobile Services). Since the name is quite a mouthful, in short it is known as Apps UP.

Developers from China, Europe, Latin America, the Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa can participate. The monetary prize pool is $1 million, but Huawei will offer practical awards too, including marketing support, cloud resources, incentives for using HMS Core’s payment system and more.

Huawei’s HarmonyOS already has 134,000 apps, over 4 million developers have signed on
The tens of thousands of apps already available can be enjoyed by over 10 million users – Huawei already claims that HarmonyOS is the third largest mobile ecosystem in the world. That may or may not be true, depending on how you count mobile ecosystems (e.g. KaiOS was on 100 million devices a couple of years ago).

However, this is only stage one of the HarmonyOS 2.0 rollout to older models, which will extend into next year. And, of course, there are the devices that come with Harmony out of the box. Speaking of, the Huawei Watch 3 and 3 Pro are on sale in China as of today, the MatePad Pro 12.6 (2021) went on sale yesterday.
