Chinese home appliance maker Joyoung announced on Wednesday that some products have already supported Huawei HarmonyOS as more brands endorsed the self-developed operating system which is regarded as Huawei's plan B to replace Google's Android OS amid its US-led crackdown.

At the Huawei Developer Conference 2020 last September, Wang Chenglu, president of Huawei Consumer Business Software, said the company has reached an arrangement to cooperate with domestic home appliances manufacturers including Midea, Joyoung and Robam which would soon launch home appliance products powered with the HarmonyOS.

The latest version of HarmonyOS is able to deliver a seamless connection with others and AI empowered visual and audio interaction functions.

By simply touching the mobile phone, a Joyoung food processor can be directly connected for operation, making soy milk, rice cereal, coffee, juice and personalized diet plan for the users.

As an IoT-oriented operating system HarmonyOS can be flexibly mounted on various IoT devices. Huawei aims to launch the system on 300 million units, including 200 million mobile phones and more than 30 million Pads, watches, display screens, sound boxes this year, according to Wang.

At present, HarmonyOS has attracted more than 20 hardware vendors and 280 application vendors to participate in the ecological system building. In the next step, it is planned to launch HarmonyOS on mobile phones, said Hu Houkun, Deputy Chairman, Rotating Chairman in March.
