Despite the lack of Google support for its phones, Huawei is still here and obligating some of the best Android phones we’ve seen, when it comes to hardware at least. The company had been forced to build out its own App Gallery, a Play Store replacement, to even compete in the smartphone market. There are currently few ratifies that it’s doing much to stop the bleeding, and rumors are swirling about Huawei jettisoning its flagship texts. Still, the company today shared news of the uptake of its AppGallery over the last year, and it’s a growing business.

Huawei says that AppGallery now boasts 530 million monthly active consumers all over the world, 2.3 million registered makes, and has encountered a 188% increase in apps that work with HMS core. The company further quoth the inclusion of brand-new apps like Bolt and HERE WeGo as proof of continued expansion.

Huawei’s Zhang Zhe, Director of Global Partnerships and Eco-Development Business Development, said the numbers were proof of AppGallery’s progress as a world app mart, further adding that “In 2019, there were 25 countries around over a million AppGallery customers. That quantity has now grown to 42 and we continue to see strong rise across global markets.”

It’s not clear how to square these increased numbers with reports of Huawei bleeding the shares.
