AnTuTu Benchmark App that allows users to compare the performance of mobile devices. Antutu Benchmark App is a very popular application that is owned by cheetah mobile. Google play store removed Antutu Benchmark, Antutu 3DBench, and Aitutu Benchmark as part of its crackdown. This app was the last updated on February 13, 2020. Google play store removed 600+ apps last month. for violating the policies of the app ad. most of the apps were removed because of the advertisements fraudulent. Google won’t mention the names of the apps removed from the play store. Cheetah Mobile is a Chinese based company and it very popular for their mobile but it’s not the first time for removing their app.
Here’s the full statement sent to Android Police:
We received a notification email from Google on March 7th informing us that AnTuTu was one of the related publisher accounts of Cheetah Mobile, all AnTuTu apps were removed from the Play Store. But in fact, We think there is some misunderstanding about it. Antutu is NOT the related account of Cheetah Mobile!!
AnTuTu was founded in 2011, even before Cheetah Mobile, and is one of the earliest Google Play developers. Cheetah Mobile invested in us in around 2014 and became one of our shareholders since then. However, we still retain a considerable account of shares and Independent operation of the company as well as our own independent Google Play account. Cheetah Mobile has never touched our Google Play account, and AnTuTu has NOT done any promotion of Cheetah Mobile’s software.
Regarding Fu Sheng being the chairman / manager of Beijing AnTuTu Technology Co., Ltd. This is because of the requirements of the investors. In fact, many Chinese companies have such requirements when investing. When the shares reach a certain percentage, investors will require changes in government registration documents. (https://www.tianyancha.com/company/3222572910), and Fu Sheng does not actually participate in the operation or the management of AnTuTu. Anyway, we have informed the investor Cheetah Mobile asking them to solve these problems caused by them.
We hope that Google can examine AnTuTu’s account carefully and finally resolve this misunderstanding as soon as possible.
We don’t know about the final update yet whether it will be available in the future or not. There are plenty of other benchmark apps you can download from the Playstore.
