What is Huawei Music?
In 2018, Huawei launched its very own streaming platform Huawei Music; a self-proclaimed “one-stop shop musical experience.” The Huawei music app comes with all Huawei and Honor devices and can also be installed on android devices by other manufacturers.
What can it do?
As well as the functionality to create playlists, listen to radio stations and download music for offline playback like many of its competitors, Huawei music also has some of its own quirks. You can for example, enable “Party Mode” which allows up to 8 phones or devices to sync to each other (via a QR code) and play the same music simultaneously to create a “surround-sound experience.” “Running Music” is another nifty feature that can help users find music that matches their running pace when they begin running. Although the service is not free, it comes with a generous 3-month free trial after which users are required to pay a fair €9.99/ $9.99/ £9.99 for a monthly subscription (which matches Spotify’s standard premium subscription and Apple Music subscription rates).
Is getting music distributed to Huawei Music worthwhile?
Huawei holds the biggest share of the Chinese smartphone market, recorded at 42% by the end of 2019 (with Apple trailing behind in 5th place at around 5% of the market share). Huawei also commendably managed to boost smartphone sales in mainland china by 66% in 2019 and is continuing to grow. Boasting a catalogue of 50 million tracks, the Huawei Music app is currently attracting up to 160 million active monthly users (growing from 100 million in 2018). This should be reason enough to get your music on the platform for the chance for it to be heard by millions of listeners. As of March 2020, Musicinfo now distributes to Huawei Music and over 50 other streaming services available in Mainland China.
