Global IT company TOP Huawei announced the concept of Super Device for Smart Office at the recent Mobile World Congress 2022, a new solution that dramatically improves cross-device connectivity and collaboration between supported Huawei devices. The software-driven functionality is in line with the company’s drive to embrace a so-called transparent AI life, which the company envisions in five main scenarios: health and fitness, easy travel, smart office, entertainment, smart home.
As one of the key scenarios in this Seamless AI Life, Huawei (consumer.huawei.com) brings the vision of “unlimited creation and seamless communication to the smart office”, aiming to enable a digitally efficient working life experience by bringing together Huawei’s two core capabilities: cross-device collaboration and ecosystem integration. Cross-device collaboration lets users connect multiple devices together in a single experience, while ecosystem integration bridges the gap between Windows and mobile platforms, boosting creativity and improving communication efficiency .
In the Philippine market, Huawei will also release several new devices with Super Device to consumers in April, including the MateBook series, the new Matepad, and a printer.
As consumers increasingly own smart devices, users often find themselves juggling two different and fragmented ecosystems: laptops for work and smartphones for entertainment. With no device fully supporting all of a user’s daily needs, the ability of devices to leverage everyone’s strengths and create a single unified experience has become more important than ever. This is especially important with the growing demand for maintaining productivity while consumers are on the go.
Cross-device collaboration makes connecting between devices more seamless and hassle-free. It has been at the frontier of innovative technology that connects devices, introducing the OneHop feature in 2018, which transfers files from smartphone to PC with just one click. In 2020, it introduced multi-screen collaboration, enabling multi-screen collaboration between two devices, such as PC-tablet, PC-smartphone, and tablet-smartphone.
This brought new features such as transferring files between two devices using drag and drop, as well as the ability to directly open mobile files on the laptop. Huawei is now ready to break down inter-device barriers by bringing the Super Device, first launched in 2021, to the Smart Office, allowing all compatible devices to work as one.
Ecosystem integration is another core capability of Smart Office. With mobile applications that excel in content consumption needs, the Huawei Mobile Application Engine provides access to AppGallery’s wealth of popular productivity and entertainment apps on Huawei laptops.
Now, the Super Device is available on Huawei PCs through the platform’s easy login interface in the PC’s Control Center, allowing quick access to your phone’s pictures and files, as well as wireless connectivity. quick and convenient smart display for presentations. This enables a focused and efficient workflow for the user who is now able to easily process tasks across all devices.
Thanks to the contextual pairing function, the Huawei PC can also quickly and easily connect to Huawei’s wireless Bluetooth headphones, speakers, mouse and keyboard, as well as the printer, improving the overall experience. smart office.
Once connected, the smartphone will be available as an external drive in the PC. This allows users to access smartphone files as they would any other external storage device, using the familiar PC file system user interface.
As a Super Device, the smartphone interface will also be displayed on the PC screen, and with multi-screen collaboration, up to three mobile apps can be opened directly on the PC for multitasking. Users can also easily access recorded material on their phone via their PC via drag and drop.
Super Device takes users to the next level of technology experience, productivity and fun as part of Huawei’s drive to realize seamless AI life. In the near future, the company plans to continue adding support for more devices.
