Huawei announced new developments to Huawei Mobile Services ecosystem at the HUAWEI Mate 40 Series launch event last week, launching Petal Search which launches in South Africa today.
Hardware and software integration enhances digital lifestyle experience
Huawei’s official search engine app, Petal Search now is available in over 170 countries and regions and supports over 50 languages, letting users conveniently and instantly find out the information and services they need.
Petal Search offers search capabilities across more than 20 categories, including apps, news, videos, images, shopping, flights, and local business. It also develops and integrates various tools, such as weather, calculator, rate exchange and even paper query to help user easily obtain daily-used information. With the new update, the search experience is now visually richer. Search results are presented in information cards, as opposed to simple web links, to help users get this wealth of useful information instantly with just a few clicks.
Local Apps that are available are ABSA, Discovery Bank, DSTV Now, Showmax, Standard bank, Woolworth, Zando, Supersport and many more
Leveraging Huawei devices’ AI capabilities, Petal Search allows users to search by taking photos or images through its visual search function. It recognises a wide range of objects such as people, animals, and landmarks, and will introduce new capabilities such as plants identification. For instance, user can simply take a photo of a dish and Petal Search will provide the recipe. A voice search feature is also integrated in the app, supporting English, Spanish, French, Arabic and more. These features help Petal Search meet the needs of users accustomed to an efficient and mobile-centric lifestyle.
In addition, with the cooperation with global and local partners, Petal Search is vigorously developing local life search services, to provide users a rich location-based and scenario-based search experience. When user look up for local life content, Petal Search provides users with high-quality and most popular localized information, such as personalized recommendations or nearby foods, worth visiting local attractions, and shopping discounts.
