The figures come a year after Richard Yu, chief executive of Huawei Consumer Business, launched the Chinese tech giant’s plans to boost the platform at a major tech event, namely as US regulators barred access to Google Mobile Services last year, citing national security concerns.
Huawei Technologies has reached several major milestones in developing its AppGallery marketplace a year after it had unveiled plans to expand its mobile platform ecosystem at the Mobile World Congress 2020, the company revealed.
According to the Chinese tech giant, AppGallery had earned 2.3m (million) registered developers, up 77 percent from last year, and 530m monthly active users (MAUs) or 33 percent in over 170m countries, amid a massive push to expand the platform.
App distribution also topped 384.4 billion last year, up 174 billion or 83 percent from 2019, with gaming leading the firm’s expansion.
Games on the platform skyrocketed 500 percent in 2020 compared with the year before, with Huawei users the first to access game launches such as AFK Arena, Clash of Kings, Asphalt 9: Legends and many others.
Zhang Zhe, director of global partnerships and eco-development business development at Huawei Consumer Business Group, said the figures proved substantial progress in the AppGallery’s global expansion.
According to Zhang, 25 countries worldwide had over 1m AppGallery users at the end of 2019, but expanded to 42 countries with strong growth in Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.
