Huawei has confirmed that its smart virtual assistant, Huawei Assistant will support an Esports ‘card’. It will then provide the latest scores, results, and news of major gaming events, leagues, and tournaments from the globe. Huawei Assistant is an AI-based one-stop tool that quickly helps users find services and information they need from one place at a single swipe of the phone’s home screen.
This new support for the Huawei Assistant comes under an exclusive partnership with live score app developer SofaScore to integrate its new Esports API into the Assistant. SofaScore is now available on AppGallery, provides detailed sports data and analytics provided in real-time from sports events, leagues, and championships all over the world.
It is available in over 30 languages and covers more than 20 disciplines with over 20 million monthly active users. The new Esports function will provide Huawei smartphone users with all the information they need to keep up with the latest in three major leagues:
- CS: GO (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive);
- Dota 2 (Defense of the Ancients 2)
- LoL (League of Legends).
How to use the Esports card on your Huawei Assistant
Huawei Assistant users can use the Esports card by adding new Moments to the cards and subscribe to a specific card. Users can specifically mark the Esports games, teams, or topics they are interested in tracking, and the AI Tips function in Huawei Assistant will ensure they receive results and real-time alerts for these choices.
SofaScore will also provide links to live streams of games in the card feature, and these can be displayed on multiple platforms, depending on the league, game, category, or the owner of the tournament. Streams typically feature on major platforms.
