The Chinese company, Huawei has finally found a replacement for Google Maps in the face of the popular map service HERE WeGo.
The service was originally developed by Nokia back in 2012 and went through several name changes and metamorphoses.
After adopting the HERE WeGo branding in 2016, it shifted focus towards navigation and public transit information.
Now Huawei has been making the service available for its users by listing the HERE WeGo - City Navigation app on the AppGallery.
Huawei was left high and dry without a viable alternative of Google Maps for its devices after the US ban.
HERE WeGo comes with a slew of useful features, including free voice-guided navigation and public transit information for 1300+ cities; moreover, If you were to plan a trip to an area without internet coverage, there's an option to download offline maps as well.
In the current lockdown situation, people travel a lot less, but when they do, it's probably out of necessity so, having a navigation service at hand could give people additional peace of mind in these troubled times.
The HERE WeGo - City Navigation app could be downloaded from the AppGallery. It does not appear on the store's features sections yet, but you can search for "Here WeGo" manually or just follow this link to download it.
