It has been months since the US deprived Huawei of the Android license, which prevents the Chinese manufacturer from offering the Google Play Store on its smartphones. If American society hopes to find a solution, the firm of the Middle Kingdom is looking for solutions on its side. She did work on an alternative version to the Google OS with Harmony, but that's not all.
AppGallery, a future alternative to the Google Play Store and the App Store?
Currently, Huawei is looking to showcase its own app store. To highlight it, the company claimed that AppGallery is the third largest app store with a total of more than 400 million monthly users active in more than 170 countries, for a total of more than 600 million users.
This information comes when the manufacturer has just lifted the veil on the Mate Xs, a worthy successor to the Mate X. Above all, it will soon present the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro, two smartphones eagerly awaited by the brand's followers.
The presentation of these will take place on March 26 in Paris. The phones could also ship dozens of Android applications to allow users to easily take advantage of the services of the American company. Huawei should take the opportunity to discuss in more detail the applications on AppGallery.
With such a claim, Huawei is certainly seeking to show that it will continue to develop in the market despite the sanctions imposed by the USA and the consequences thereof. It also shows that it is a real alternative to the Google Play Store and the App Store, the two heavyweights on the market.
It would not be surprising if the Chinese brand also sought to attract developers to its application store, which would have the effect of creating a virtuous circle making the service grow.
For its part, Google claimed more than one billion monthly active users since 2015 on the Google Play Store.
