Tencent’s mobile marketplace MyApp is the most widely used third-party Android app store in China, according to a new report.
Games market intelligence firm Newzoo said the storefront covers 23.56% of the market thanks to Tencent’s reach through its apps such as QQ, WeChat and Qzone.
In Tencent’s Q2 2016 financial report, it noted WeChat and Weixing had a combined 807 million monthly active users.
For context, China has over 900 million MAUs of smartphones and tablets.
