3527

As soon as US President Donald Trump decided to ban the use of Huawei smartphones, and 5G related devices on the soil of North America, the Chinese Telecom giant started to work on its own App Gallery which will help those using Huawei smartphones search, download, manage, and share mobile apps.

 

Released in March 2020 and dubbed as Huawei App Gallery, it stands as an official app distribution platform where users can download and use all sorts of apps on their respective mobile phones.

 

Yes, from March 25th,2020 the Huawei App Gallery has become fully functional where users can enjoy exclusive content along with some free welcome gifts in the form of some prize draws, competitions, events, and rewards.

 

As Google has barred the Chinese firm from using its Android License, Huawei has decided to ship all its phones and services sans Google apps and of course its search engine.

 

On the launch of its other product from its flagship P40 series of smartphones, the company has pledged that it will protect all its user’s privacy and security while assuring them unique and utmost experience.

 

“Privacy will be in your control”, said Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei and added that the app store is still under development stage.

 

It’s being reported that over 3,000 engineers have and are working in the development of the app ecosystem engineering where users will be provided with utmost protection as application developers are allowed to submit their real name and identification which then is followed by a 4-step review process for app security and operation.

 

Note- According to the stats obtained by Cybersecurity Insiders, Huawei has become the 3rd largest marketplace for apps, as its App Gallery is being used by over 400 million active users across 170 countries.
