Huawei has been finding new ways to make its devices more appealing and usable since the company is not allowed to use Google Services. Now, the Chinese manufacturer has signed a contract with a French company called Qwant that offers search engine services.
All Huawei P40 devices in France, Italy, and Germany, will have the search pre-installed, while everyone else can download it from the Huawei AppGallery.
The partnership is “born out of shared commitment to protect users’ data privacy and security”. According to the press release Huawei and Qwant engineering teams worked together to provide customized mobile search services, intelligent context awareness, and scenario-based recommendations. It is tailored to provide more efficient app searches to European users too.
Qwant complies with GPDR privacy standards and the search engine does not track nor analyze users’ personal data. It is also working in the name of content copyright and will always boost original articles and materials higher in its results.
