Google launches Chinese developers’ website
US tech giant Google Inc launched a Chinese developers’ website on Thursday, aiming to make it easier for developers to learn more about Google services and technologies, as well as develop new applications.
The US company said it set up the website — developers.google.cn — especially for Chinese developers, which has gathered the technological resources Google provides to its global developers and the latest technical information, including the Android and Firebase platforms.
Developers could access more than 1 billion Android users in 190 countries and regions with the help of Google Play, the official app store of Google’s mobile platform, the company said at its Chinese developers’ conference in Beijing on Thursday.
Starting from 2017, the Google Developers Agency Program will be open to China’s software development agents. It will join hands with more Chinese partners for growth billion and development on the global platform.
Scott Beaumont, president of Google Greater China, said it is endeavoring to encourage mobile innovation and startups by developers, adding that Google is helping Chinese developers to explore highquality apps and go global with its innovative technologies.
Ben Galbraith, head of product and developer relations at Google’s developer product group, said: “I am very glad to see that Chinese developers have become an indispensable part of the global developers’ community.”
He added that Google is sparing no efforts to provide diverse innovative platforms for developers, such as Firebase, its virtual reality platform Daydream and open source platform TensorFlow.
