BARCELONA, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cheetah Mobile Inc., the world's 4th largest mobile app developer, today announced the launch of its Cheetah Open Feed (COF) platform, which allows app developers and OEMs to embed high quality content feeds provided by Cheetah Mobile's leading news aggregation app, News Republic, into their apps and mobile operating systems.
The first-of-its-kind platform provides OEMs and app developers with open access to licensed content from 2,300 of the world's top media, Cheetah Mobile's AI-driven content personalization technology and one of Cheetah Mobile's best-performing monetization scenarios. COF is an innovative way for OEMs to differentiate their mobile devices and for app developers to generate new premium traffic, new revenue, and new engagement.
"Cheetah Open Feed is the first time that Cheetah Mobile has given other industry players access to its premier content products, which can help OEMs create differentiated features, and help developers better monetize their apps," said Johnny Li, Vice President of International Business Development at Cheetah Mobile. "This is not only the first time that Cheetah Mobile has opened up its valuable content stream from News Republic, which we acquired last year, it is also the first time that Cheetah Mobile has opened up one of our best-performing monetization scenarios to create a win-win situation and contribute to the mobile ecosystem as a whole."
The feed provides users with access to more than 100,000 articles, 40,000 images and 2,500 videos per day from News Republic's 2,300 media partners in 47 countries and 43 languages. News Locker also makes sure that users see the content they want by leveraging Cheetah Mobile's deep learning and big data-driven content-recommendation technology.
A report by Cheetah Lab, Cheetah Mobile's mobile internet-focused research institute, shows that integrating content feeds into utility apps can increase revenue and app usage rates. Cheetah Mobile has seen a significant increase in revenue from its utility apps since embedding them with News Republic content feeds. Through COF, now all OEMs and app developers have the opportunity to duplicate Cheetah Mobile's success and provide innovative and engaging user experiences.
Cheetah Open Feed is already available to developers. If you are interested in joining the platform, please visit Cheetah for Publishers at: publishers.cmcm.com.
