Huawei achieved a major milestone yesterday when the HERE WeGo app became available on the Huawei AppGallery.

HERE WeGo is a navigation app originally developed by Nokia for the Windows Phone OS. It later spawned into an independent mapping company called Here Technologies making its way to Android, iOS, and Amazon devices.


Google Maps Alternative

What’s makes HERE WeGo a big deal for Huawei is its set of features that are comparable to Google Maps. The company is still prohibited from pre-installing Google apps on its new smartphones and finding an alternative navigation app is hard.

Thankfully, HERE WeGo offers the following features for free:

  • Turn-by-turn Navigation
  • Sattelite & Terrain Maps
  • Pedestrian Navigation
  • Bicycle Navigation
  • Public Transport Navigation (Taxi, Bus, etc)
  • Real-time Traffic
  • Location Sharing
  • Street View
  • Offline Maps


How to Download HERE WeGo

Since HERE WeGo has been officially released on the Huawei AppGallery, all Huawei smartphones can now download the app. This is especially useful for Huawei smartphones running on HMS instead of GMS.

It can be searched by typing “here” on the search bar. If you’re using a Huawei smartphone right now, this LINK will also open the HERE WeGo app page on the Huawei App Gallery.
