“Cheetah Mobile’s success with utility apps has provided the breakthrough needed to expand into the content and AI realms and take our business to the next level with attractive vertical video through Cheetah Ads,” stated Arther Wu, senior director of Monetization and Business Operations at Cheetah Mobile.
