Recently, a series of documents obtained by the well-known American newspaper Bloomberg reveals that how the well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Huawei has tried over the past few months, simply to trigger and promote its well-known app store, App Gallery, which could become the alternative application store to the Google Play Store that the brand’s devices have gained at the beginning of 2018.
WoW! Huawei Building Its Own Play Store
A series of documents obtained by the well-known American newspaper Bloomberg reveals that how the well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Huawei has tried over the past few months, simply to trigger and promote its well-known app store, App Gallery, which could become the alternative application store to the Play Store that the brand’s devices have gained at the beginning of 2018.
The company basically offered a series of developers the possibility of publishing their applications in this new store, which comes pre-installed in all the Asian and European devices of the brand. In return, the Chinese manufacturer Huawei would help these companies to expand and promote their services in China, where the Play Store does not operate correctly and there is a greater diversity of app stores.
According to the well-known media portal, of course, Bloomberg, the well-known Chinese smartphone brand Huawei also had conversations with several operators, to whom it offered to share the income generated by the App Gallery in exchange for pre-installing this store in the devices sold through its stores.
To simplify the incorporation of new “apps” to App Gallery, the well-known Chinese smartphone brand Huawei offered developers a series of tools that simply allow them to easily adapt their developments and make them work correctly without the intervention of Google Play.
While all over the world the tech giant Google’s app store is the most popular one, as it offers a large category of services. The measure announced by the Department of Commerce of the United States simply puts at risk the business of the Chinese manufacturer Huawei, where they could not match the ecosystem of applications and services offered by its biggest rivals.
Although the well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei works on an alternative operating system to Android, a fact acknowledged by Richard Yu, the definitive separation of Google would not be easy in market, where the services of the American company, Google enjoy high perception in society.
Hence, it would not be easy to migrate applications from Google Play Store to App Gallery since many of their functions depend on Google’s private APIs to which Huawei or the developer would have to look for an alternative.
The situation is very different from the one that the well-known Chinese Smartphone manufacturer faces in its native country, where Google services are blocked and there is a greater diversity of platforms to distribute applications. Replicating that model in Asia, Europe and the rest of the western markets in which it operates represents a major challenge for the Chinese company.
