HUAWEI AppGallery’s “Global+ Local” Strategy – Helping Local Developers Utilise a Global Platform
HUAWEI AppGallery has concentrated its efforts in working with developers on both a local and global scale to bring the most relevant apps to users, boosting the number of developers working with the platform and delivering more choices to consumers around the world.
Developers are increasingly looking to HUAWEI AppGallery to penetrate local audiences and tap into its growing global audience. In turn, the platform can provide its diverse customer base with the most relevant apps. Throughout the last year, HUAWEI AppGallery has seen global applications from HereWeGo and Volt in the transportation industry, LINE, and Viber in the communications sector and other popular apps such as Booking.com, Deezer, Qwant, join its growing platform.
As part of this strategy, Huawei is also leveraging its expertise in China to help developers worldwide tap into the country’s lucrative app market. HUAWEI AppGallery has helped over a thousand overseas developers penetrate China’s growing mobile economy in the last 12 months.
