Huawei, has announced that banking apps in Kenya are now available on AppGallery, as the company continues to build its own ecosystem after the American ban in 2019 that made them lose access to Google Apps, including the Play Store.
A number of local banks in Kenya including, Stanbic Bank, Absa Kenya, SC Mobile, MCo-OpCash, Equity Eazzy Banking, DTB and NCBA Loop, now have their banking apps on AppGallery.
Through direct partnerships with local app developers, 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.
Today, AppGallery is now one of the top three marketplaces globally with more than 530 million monthly active users across 170 countries.
The platform has 2.3 million registered developers globally, with more than 45,000 developers from the Middle East and Africa.
In a statement, Lu Geng, Vice President Middle East, and Africa Global Partnerships & Eco-Development said, “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.”
From the apps’ integration within AppGallery until the official launch of the banking app on the distribution platform, Huawei provides full-spectrum operational support, data analytics, and marketing to its partners by mobilizing local resources.
The company 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.
AppGallery also deploys a series of privacy and security measures, ensuring users a safe and convenient platform to download apps from.
