Huawei and Viber Partnership Goes from Strength to Strength as AppGallery delivers on its promise
Huawei, one of the leading global technology companies, announced it is expanding its long-term brand cooperation with Viber following a successful consumer response to one of the world’s leading apps for free and easy communication on AppGallery. The service, which has hundreds of millions of users in 190 countries, was one of the first major brands to join AppGallery and is one of the most popular.
Viber enables voice and video calls, messaging, and group chats, and has achieved a strong global presence with 62m app distributions through AppGallery in many regions. The two companies are now working together to deliver deeper engagement with the growing user base.
Part of Viber’s success on AppGallery has been its ability to embrace Huawei’s “Global +Local” strategy, which focuses on developing relationships with app providers whose solutions are designed to give high quality, locally oriented services to people.
Viber has released a customized app update as part of the business partnership. All Viber-owned sticker packs are exclusively free for users with the latest version of the Viber app downloaded from AppGallery.
AppGallery is a smart and innovative ecosystem that allows developers to create unique experiences for consumers. Huawei’s unique Huwaei Mobile Services Core allows Apps to be integrated across different devices, delivering more convenience and a smoother experience – and this is part of our wider “1+8+N ”strategy at Huawei.
The AppGallery vision is to make it an open, innovative app distribution platform that is accessible to consumers, and at the same time, strictly protects users’ privacy and security while providing them with a unique and smart experience. Being one of the top three app marketplaces globally, AppGallery offers a wide variety of global and local Apps across 18 categories including navigation & transport, news, social media, and more. AppGallery is available in more than 170 countries and regions with over 530 million monthly active users globally. Huawei partnered with 2.3 million developers across the globe, and in 2020 the total downloads from AppGallery have reached 384.4 billion times.
