AppGallery and its partners
In the first quarter of 2020, mobile game downloads and revenue increased significantly, with game downloads increasing by 21% quarterly. Player spending has also increased, rising 16% year-over-year to $ 17.5 billion.
As the mobile industry continues to grow, AppGallery has partnered with many companies and developers to make it easier to find. This year, Huawei has partnered with IGG and Lilith Games to bring Lords Mobile, Rise of Kingdoms and AFK Arena to the App Gallery.
Mobile titan Supercell is also working with AppGallery to increase brand awareness, especially in the Chinese market. Through this partnership, Supercell’s leading MOBA Brawl Stars were officially launched in China earlier this year.
Gameloft is also part of the App Gallery roster and has seen a significant increase in downloads since it partnered with Huawei. Gameloft game app downloads have increased seven-fold in the first three months of our collaboration with AppGallery.
This Friday’s HDC game session will cover the games that recently appeared in the App Gallery. Cocos VP Cynthia Du will also host a talk on how to bring games to the App Gallery. This session will also cover Flexion Mobile distribution cases.
