Google, Twitter and Facebook are not buying any of your apps, according to a report from The Information, which cites sources close to the companies.
In fact, these are three of the largest app publishers in the world.
The report says that the companies are not just selling your app on their platforms, they are “trying to build up a business around it” and that the goal is to “capture your attention.”
The report quotes two sources as saying that Google has “made significant investments in its apps” since the app store launched in 2016, and is actively working with companies like Facebook and WhatsApp to create “killer apps.”
It notes that the three companies are also working together on “other emerging technologies.”
“As with any acquisition, there is the risk of dilution, and it is possible that Google will be looking to leverage existing products, but in the end, Google will win,” the report says.
Facebook is the biggest of the three apps publishers, with around 30 million monthly active users, according the report.
Google’s Whatsapp has around 20 million monthly users, while Twitter has around 6 million monthly subscribers.
It is unclear what other companies Facebook and Google are working with.
A Google spokesperson told The Information that the company has been working with all three app publishers, but declined to comment further.
Twitter did not respond to a request for comment.
Microsoft is the second-largest app publisher in the app market, behind only Apple.
The company’s share of the market has been growing steadily, according, with its market share increasing by 10% in the past year.
Its share of all app sales in 2016 was around 10%, according to The Information report.
