Huawei's proprietary app store gets a worldwide release


Huawei is a behemoth in the mobile world, second only to Samsung and Apple, but up until now, it didn't have a globally available, in-house app store. Its AppGallery storefront, a counterpart to Samsung's Galaxy Apps, was available only in China, but Huawei has нов opted to bring AppGallery to other countries as well.

The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro come with the platform pre-installed out-of-the-box, but owners of other Huawei (and Honor) phones will also be able to download it later this year. AppGallery will be available on all future Huawei phones, starting this year, the company announced. It's expected to roll out for older models in Q2 2018, although, as usual, timing of the update availability will vary depending on device model and region.

Huawei touts AppGallery as a "premium" app storefront, advertising "only high quality family-friendly content with average 4.3/5 star rating.". In order to use AppGallery, you'll also need to set up a Huawei ID, if you don't already have one.
