It is no longer news Huawei has been banned from using Google services due to its ongoing troubles with the United States. The company has since been adjusting to life after Google with the creation of its own operating system and AppGallery store. Earlier in the year, the company reached an agreement with Dutch navigation and digital mapping company TomTom to use its maps as a replacement for Google Maps. Huawei has made another progress by having ride-hailing company Bolt on its app store.
Bolt, formerly Taxify, is said to be Europe’s 3rd fastest growing tech company and recently raised funds of $109 million to grow its food delivery business. Bolt will debut this week on Huawei’s AppGallery store and will provide ride and food delivery services like rival Uber Eats. Bolt and Uber operates a similar business model and all a user needs to order a ride is an account and linked valid bank card.
Uber has a global presence with its ride services available in more than 900 cities of the world while Bolt is gradually finding its way with its services available in more than 150 cities in the world.
This is a welcome development for Huawei owners with the ongoing economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The partnership will enable people make some much-needed cash by signing up a driver on their Huawei smartphones.
