Break-ups are uncommon everywhere, including the tech industry.
Not too long ago, news of Google cutting ties with Huawei received a lot of attention. Unfortunately, or not, Huawei didn’t pen a love song inspired by the big G.
Need a quick recap of the ground-breaking news? We got your back with this article.
Huawei is expected to come up with its own Operating System, allegedly called Ark, as well as an improved version of their very own Play Store, Huawei AppGallery, in light of their newly-found independence from Google’s Android.
And Huawei has started the ball rolling.
Huawei sending Play Store developers love calls
To provide Huawei users with a greater variety of mobile applications on their 2018-released AppGallery and entice users to stick with the brand, Huawei has reportedly been reaching out to well-liked Play Store developers.
In addition, Huawei has been in talks with Aptoide, “one of the most popular sources to download Android apps, even when it may not be officially supported via Google Play Store”.
After all, what’s the use of an app store if you can’t access applications you use religiously right?
Here’s the gist of what Huawei mentioned in their email to an unidentified Play Store developer:
As seen from the image above, Huawei has attached figures to justify how widely used their existing AppGallery is. The Chinese company claims that their app store is used by “270 million” users each month and has been working with “560K developers” thus far.
Don’t get me wrong, facts and figures are great in backing up an argument and instilling trust. However, more evidence is required to support their figures because the developer didn’t seem to be convinced, much less a third party like XDA Developers.
Furthermore, Huawei mentioned that they would provide “full support” without explaining in detail what support developers would receive.
With all that said, Huawei users who live and breathe social media will be disappointed to know that widely-used Google apps such as YouTube or Gmail on new Huawei phones in time to come.
It won’t be exactly the same but Huawei will definitely be able to come up with alternatives of these apps – think along the lines of Weibo and Youku Tudou.
But at least we know what’s coming: the giant has started its engine.
