Best Practices:

Adopt live streaming e-commerce as a new revenue stream for your apps. Get started by integrating your apps with Huawei HMS Core 5.0 platform to publish your apps at Huawei AppGallery.

Implement live streaming features by leveraging on the followings:

  • Implement switch views via DV Kit from HMS Core 5.0.
  • Implement real-time backdrop via HiAI from HMS Core 5.0.
  • Implement natural HRD streaming via Camera Kit from HMS Core 5.0.
  • Implement streaming acceleration via Wireless Kit from HMS Core 5.0.

Editor's comments:

  • Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) is the equivalent of Google Mobile Services (GMS). Basically,what this means is that Huawei Mobile Services offer alternative development frameworks and shared services for apps to be published on Huawei AppGallery.
  • For example, the HMS Core 5.0 allows apps to easily support live streaming by leveraging on the APIs provided by DV Kit,HiAI,Camera Kit and Wireless Kit.
  • Another way to look at it is that in order to publish apps to Huawei AppGallery,apps have to switch from GMS to HMS.
