New Delhi: Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei announced on Tuesday that its artificial intelligence-based Xploree keyboard, developed by Indian IT company KeyPoint Technologies, is now available on its mobile application store.
Huawei developed its own app store as the U.S. government banned U.S. companies from providing it with software and hardware.
Unlike Apple and Google, Huawei pays developers an incentive of up to $ 20,000 to integrate their app into its AppGallery, the Chinese telecommunications major said.
“As the official app distribution platform, the AppGallery has grown over these years to create an advanced, attractive and secure app ecosystem for consumers,” said Chares Peng, President of Honor group and Huawei India Consumer Business Group, in a statement.
“That said, we are delighted to embark on our collaboration with Xploree to create an exceptional experience for our users and at the same time give them more than just conventional keyboard technology.”
Last week, Huawei added the Indian music and video streaming app Hungama to its app gallery.
“We are optimistic about our commitment to the country and with this milestone we further aim to create unparalleled value for our partners as well as for end users,” said Peng.
Huawei has reached out to Indian app developers with a billion dollar global fund to develop its own suite of mobile services.
“Huawei’s AppGallery is one of the top three markets with a presence in over 170 countries and gives us a great opportunity to showcase our flagship product, Xploree – a first of its kind proactive keyboard assistant,” said KeyPoint Technologies CEO Nutan Chokkareddy.
