The company also invites the developers to join their developer community for free and stated that there's 560,000 developers in their portal.
The ban could lead to a "dramatic reduction" in the number of companies that would be able to supply the government, and would disproportionately affect United States companies in rural areas where Huawei gears were popular, Russell T. Vought, acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, wrote in letters to Vice-President Mike Pence and 9 Congressmen.
Huawei notes that its AppGallery is preloaded on all devices globally and the fact that the company sold over 350 million devices globally in the last two years.
The move is part of Huawei's broader effort to offset the fallout of the USA administration's ban on the world's second-largest smartphone vendor and the world's largest telecom equipment maker. According to a report, Huawei has started reaching out to Android developers to get their apps published on Huawei's own store called AppGallery.
This means that AppGallery will be central to Huawei's efforts to convince smartphone users that it has every part in place to transition into this new chapter in its mobile history (the extra-Android era). Upcoming Huawei phones will not be able to access Google Play Store and Google apps. We are still waiting to see if Huawei is going to launch Vast OS, Mist OS, or the totally-not-communist-sounding Red Dream OS. The Chinese tech firm has mentioned that its smartphones already operate without Android OS in China and has its own App Store as well.
"We are reviewing the Commerce Department's final rule and the more recently issued temporary general license and taking steps to ensure compliance", Facebook said, referring to a 90-day grace period allowing continued support of existing Huawei equipment.
Notably, the U.S. Department of Commerce granted a temporary exemptions that sees Google working with Huawei till August 19th, 2019 to ensure its customers have access to software, apps and security updates.
Google halting its business is one of the major blows following considering that Huawei phones run on Android software. Huawei certainly doesn't have the money that Samsung has, but it may not need it if its determination proves fierce enough.
