Google Play rival story sounds different now
A couple of days ago, a note appeared that Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo and Vivo decided to join forces to create the new Global Developer Service Alliance (GDSA) platform, with which these companies are going to challenge the dominance of Google Play.
However, Xiaomi hastened to make an official statement. Xiaomi and Google have no disagreements, so it makes no sense to deal with it. Xiaomi noted that Reuters misinterpreted Chinese media reports.
The Global Developer Service Alliance is designed solely to facilitate the download of applications by developers to the respective Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo application stores at the same time. There is no competing interest between the Global Developer Service Alliance and the Google Play Store.Xiaomi press service
