Huawei improves AppGallery games section
On October 2022, Dr. Jaime Gonzalo, VP of Consumer Mobile Services Europe at Huawei, people from the global gaming industry were given insight into how they could achieve an improved return on their considerable investment in new and existing games to boost AppGallery for game distributions.
In the past few years, AppGallery is becoming a popular platform for games as it serves millions of monthly active users with new and existing gaming apps. Up until today, AppGallery now lists games from some leading titles such as PUBG Mobile, Mobile legends, Free Fire, State of Survival, and more. Hence, Huawei continues to work on the games section for AppGallery users to enrich its user engagement.
“Games developers are finding it increasingly difficult to reach new audiences. The major challenge is that customer acquisition cost has increased significantly over the years due to market saturation and inflated pricing. That’s why alternative app platforms such as AppGallery are emerging and playing their part to provide developers with improved revenue-generating opportunities,” said Jaime Gonzalo”.
Currently, 99.9% of apps downloaded via the leading app distribution platforms are losing users monthly, pushing the costs of retention higher and higher.
Gonzalo pointed out that AppGallery currently has 580 million global monthly active users, 45 million of which are in Europe. Outside China, AppGallery has increased in-app revenue by 3x year-on-year, casual game growth has increased by 20x over the same period, and monthly ad revenue for developers has doubled.
“We have a high spending audience,” Gonzalo told the Pocket Gamer audience. “In countries like Germany the ARPPU is $200, in the UK the average is $159 while in Poland it is $100, and this is coupled with very low developer effort. Existing Android games can be ready to onboard to AppGallery in just a few minutes. We also support every game with solutions, promotions, and developer kits, which accelerate distribution and boost revenue numbers.”
Huawei to bring new cloud region in Indonesia later this year
Huawei is planning to bring a new and advanced cloud region to Indonesia. The Chinese tech maker gave a little hint and description of this matter at the recently organized Huawei Cloud Indonesia Summit in Jakarta, this week.
So far, Huawei and its cloud technologies are constantly hovering around the world. With such efforts, the high-profile manufacturer is trying to provide the best network solutions to its consumers and operators across the global regions.
According to the latest information, Huawei will establish a new cloud region in Indonesia, later this year. Consequently, this means that by the end of this year, Indonesian users will be able to enjoy a far better network experience than ever.
The CEO of Huawei Indonesia – Jacky Chen describes that the advanced cloud region for Indonesia will consist of three availability zones. In such a manner, it will continue to promote and orient advanced and high-end technologies as well as services in the region.
For instance, cloud-native AI, pre-trained large models, databases, big-data interfaces, and more. Together, these initiatives will provide better help to small-scale enterprises. Further, it will aid in improving competitiveness and reducing overall costs.
Huawei Cloud – An immersive network experience for users
Up to this point, Huawei Cloud has deployed its affiliation in 6 international regions. This includes Singapore, Bangkok, Thailand, Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Johannesburg, and more. On the flip side, it also has numerous base stations in Hong Kong and China.
Huawei Cloud has encouraged the planning and evolution of cloud-native infrastructures for a long time. This evolution has played a vital role in developing the local internet industry. Besides, the customers also gained the chance to experience new resources, flexible services, rapid time-to-market info, and automated operations.
To bring these facilities to Indonesia as well, the largest news media group in the region – DetikNetwork has chosen Huawei Cloud. The cooperation believes that only Huawei is capable of providing high-quality live broadcast services through its Cloud Infrastructure.
This will be a great help for approx 200 million Internet users in the region. Earlier, the company announced the cloud region plans for Saudi Arabia. Now, it’s time to stretch the roots of cloud services in different parts of the world.
