Local banking apps now available on Huawei AppGallery

Huawei Mobile Kenya has announced that a number of local banking apps are now available on AppGallery. Huawei AppGallery is the official Huawei app store that you can use to download hundreds of Android apps.

Huawei built this new ecosystem after the American ban in 2019 that made them lose access to Google Apps, including services like the Play Store.

Since last year, leading banking apps have been integrated within AppGallery in Kenya, enabling users to access their bank accounts on-the-go from the convenience of their mobile devices. Huawei users in Kenya can now download quickly and safely many banking apps available on the AppGallery such as Stanbic Bank, Absa Kenya, SC Mobile, MCo-OpCash, Equity Eazzy Banking, DTB and NCBA Loop.

“The rapid growth of AppGallery portfolio within the financial and banking app industry in the Middle East and Africa is a result of our continuous effort on working closely with local entities and supporting them from various perspectives. It also pursues our aim to integrate innovative and high-quality apps, providing Huawei users with the most relevant local and global apps”. Lu Geng, Vice President Middle East, and Africa Global Partnerships and Eco-Development, said.

Huawei says support does not end after the integration process; banks can also extend their partnerships with AppGallery and benefit from various co-branded campaigns to unlock more business opportunities and brand exposure. From End to end digital acquisition, product and offers amplification, eCommerce partnership for card spends, referral programs, app engagement and registrations to 360 integrated joint marketing campaigns – the options are limitless. To date, several partners from the banking industry have benefited from these campaigns. They have seen successful results and up to 200% increase in app exposure and downloads from the AppGallery.

AppGallery now has more than 530 million monthly active users across 170 countries according to Huawei.  The platform also now has 2.3 million registered developers globally, with more than 45,000 developers from the Middle East and Africa.
