    Still i didnt get answer on my question. I dont know if you know that new Huaweis dont support any google application. There is NO Google Play Store, only Huawei App Store. 1 month ago i asked this question and I still didnt get the answer.

    Currently i have Samsung, but I want to buy Huawei P40 PRO and huawei app store doesnt have OSM. Samsung App Store has it. My question is again:

    When do you plan to develop OSM App for Huawei users?

    Notice: Huawei P30 is the last version of Huaweis that supports google apps

    I will not to play OSM on web version because app version is more better for me than web version.

    I will not also download "illegal" OSM from "alternative" Stores because this way of download is not safe for any mobiles

    Oké, I didn't know that. However, my explanation still stands. Gamebascis doesn't develop the app for independent phone manufacterers. That Samsung has the app on their store has nothing to do with Gamebasics. They most likely paid Google to get permission to have it on their own store. So you should ask Huawei this question.

    There is actually a way to use Google Play Store on a Huawei P40, but it apparently takes a bit of time and patience. Not sure if it is legal or not.

    What do you mean illegal OSM from alternative store?

    OSM on Google Play Store is legit and the primary place to download apps on Android phones. So please elaborate!

    Okay, scratch this. Afer checking a bit on the internet it seems that developers need to make changes to their code, so that the app works with Huawei's own HMS Core in order to work with the Huawei Store. However, this cost time and money.

    I think that he meant: illegal alternative store and not illegal OSM.

    @Ölmöäü_NL Huawei has a big problem due to the US trade ban and for this reason, they have prohibited from doing business with American companies - namely, Google.

    But now what I read that Huawei is launching something called "Petal Search - Find Apps" and so maybe with this new app can find OSM, but I'm not sure.

    With Huawei PRO 40 it is a big problem to have an OSM App and if you want to buy this smartphone the only way to play OSM is by going through the Webb.

    Hi,

    I can confirm that there are plans to make a specific release for the huawei store. But there is not yet an exact date for now.
    Also, any download other than from an official store (Google Play Store or App Store) is at users own risk.

    In the meantime, you can play via the web or your current device till the app goes live on the Huawei Store!
