Competitors to Google Search aren’t exactly new but few can claim to have as much breadth and depth as what is arguably the most-known Internet search engine, for better or worse. Petal Search, which Huawei boasts is from today on now in over 170 countries and supports over 50 languages, tries to offer nearly all the same features, including tools for weather, rate exchange, and more. It even supports image searches by taking photos and, of course, voice search.
Huawei will probably find no shortage of users for these apps and services, at least in China where Google doesn’t have a foothold. Elsewhere, however, not only will these Huawei products pale in comparison, they won’t really address the root cause of its problems with the US government, the accusations of state-sponsored espionage which could be made even easier by using Huawei’s own Google and Microsoft alternatives.
