Summary: The old Internet giant by virtue of brand and technology advantages accounted for the majority of the Android App Store market, but with the growth of domestic mobile phone shipments, Xiaomi, Huawei as the representative of the domestic manufacturers, by virtue of the “pre-installed” way, so that its user volume surge, the store’s market share is also higher and higher, by “pre-installed” The squeeze on both internet giants and traditional third parties has slowed user growth. And the traditional third-party platform can only continue to stabilize their own camp, but there is no shortage of counter-attack. “Melee” creates competition, but “competition” can give users a more novel experience. In the future, we believe that the mobile application platform in the three camps will develop itself through continuous innovation and make full use of its core strengths, and strive to establish its own brand effect in “competition” to increase user download rate and usage.
