Huawei AppGallery is Huawei’s own application store just like Google Play Store. The company is continuously working hard to improve its App store ecosystem and introducing new features to improve user’s experience.
Initially, AppGallery was available in the Chinese market and later introduced for global users. Due to USA-China trade wars, Huawei smartphones are no longer support for the GMS (Google Mobile Services).
As of now, it offers thousands of Apps and Games for its users. According to the latest news, on March 1, Huawei has made some data public and thrown light on the active user data on its core application, AppGallery.
Richard Yu, Huawei Consumer BG CEO shared Huawei’s app store now has more than 530 million monthly active users, with an annual growth of 83% in-app distribution, and the number of app installs in 2020 will reach 384 billion.
He also added that 2.3 million developers are developing mobile applications for AppGallery, which is 77% higher than in 2019. At the end of 2019, there were more than 1 million AppGallery users in 25 countries across the world, and this number has now grown to 42 million.
Huawei’s CBG global cooperation director Zhang Zhe confirmed that the number of applications optimized for HMS Core “more than doubled in one year.”
Aside from this, yesterday, it was reported that the company has almost done with its EMUI 11 program and delivered the stable version in China. Also, the Chinese tech giant has confirmed that the latest EMUI has completed over 100 million upgrades in total, which is a big milestone.
Additionally, Huawei also confirmed that the next step in software updates will be to bring HarmonyOS (Hongmeng OS) to the users and upgrade older devices.
