Huawei is already testing its alternative to Gmail: the emails arrive @ petalmail.com


Petal Mail joins Petal Search and Petal Maps within Huawei's application ecosystem.

The Chinese manufacturer Huawei was forced to dispense with Google services in its latest terminals, and despite the information that Harmony OS is more than just a copy of Android and not an independent operating system, it continues to work to develop its own applications, like your own email system: Petal Mail.

After Petal Search and Petal Maps, comes Petal Mail

Information from Gizchina reveals that Huawei is already testing its own email alternative to the ubiquitous Gmail and it's called Petal Mail.

Huawei confirms when the HarmonyOS OTA will arrive on its first phones

The Chinese giant already has its own search engine, Petal Search, which provides app information, news, pictures, videos, shopping, music in more than 50 languages ​​and its own maps app, Petal Maps, which has a map display and navigation mode to use as a GPS and is available in more than 140 countries and regions outside of China.

Now, Huawei takes one more step to completely disassociate itself from Google and is already testing its own email provider that has the domain @ petalmail.com.

If we want to open an email account with this new provider, we must access the Petal Mail website, and once the registration and verification of your mobile number is finished, we will be able to manage our new email account from there. Of course, Huawei is also working on a mobile application, but for now, is in beta and is not yet operational.

So you can easily (but not officially) install Google Play on Huawei phones

The Chinese giant is well aware that the solution to the current crisis is create a complete ecosystem of applications that can replace Google apps and services, and sell their terminals as something unique in the market: devices with the best hardware and with own software that does not depend on third parties.
