After the Chinese developer was found guilty of popping out the ad-infested apps with a large number of data collection and dodgy in-app purchase mechanisms, the crackdown of Google against apps infringing its PlayStore policies. All of Cheetah Mobile’s apps token from the Android marketplace recently.
In a stated misinterpretation, Google has also started Antutu’s benchmarking apps because of its relationship with the shady development studio.
But not as impressive as they were in the past. The benchmarking apps of the smartphone are still famous among consumers looking to test their devices to the limits (and sometimes brag about them). Antutu became successive, featuring thousands of YouTube comparison videos and websites over the years, reporting the customers about the performance they are getting for their money.
Android police reveal the latest improvement. However, observe all of the company’s three benchmarking apps (Antutu 3DBench, Antutu Benchmark, and Altutu Benchmark) deleted from Google Play Store. Probably due to its association with Cheetah Mobile.
A cite from Antutu CEO Zhao Chen’s comprehensive briefing to Android Police is shown below:
On March 7, we got a notification email from Google. The notification informs us that AnTuTu was one of the related accounts of Cheetah Mobile. All AnTuTu apps were distant from the Play Store. However, we feel there is some misconception about it. Also, Antutu is NOT the associated account of Cheetah Mobile!!
AnTuTu is one of the earliest Google Play developers and was spotted in 2011, before the Cheetah Mobile. But Cheetah Mobile bought out in 2014 and became one of our partners from that time. However, we still maintain a significant account of shares and Independent operation of the company as well as our own separate Google Play account. Cheetah Mobile has never grazed our Google Play account, and AnTuTu has NOT made any advancement of Cheetah Mobile’s app.
He further added that Antutu was seeking to change its legal supplier from Cheetah Mobile. And the position of Fu Sheng with the company was due to investor demands, noting that he ” does not take part in the work or the management of Antutu.”
