Google and Facebook are launching a new Web store store to compete with the Chinese market’s dominance of Amazon and Microsoft’s e-commerce sites.
The Chinese search giant announced the launch of the Chinese e-store, Google Play Store, on Wednesday.
The company said that it has plans to launch a “new Chinese Web store that will offer Chinese products, games and other content, alongside our own native apps for Android, iOS and Windows.”
The new site, which will launch in March, will include a number of apps, including an Android app for games and a Windows Phone app for movies and television.
The new store will feature an app-store and an e-shop as well as a “web store that offers Chinese products.”
Google Play and Apple will partner on the new site through their existing Google Play stores, which both offer similar products in China.
Google has been aggressively targeting the Chinese smartphone market with its Play Store since it launched there in 2011, and now it’s partnering with the country’s largest tech company to launch its own Google Play store.
The Web store will be available in China on the Google Play app store, the Google Cloud Platform app, the Microsoft Store app, and the iOS app, according to Google.
The stores will be launched by the same company that makes Google’s Android operating system.
