The biggest advantage for me is that you can have a shared codebase between the platforms.

The best example is creating cross-platform games. If you write the game code in C++ you only need to write a small amount of code specific for current platform (e.g. Android) that just runs your C++ code right after the start.

Just take a look at Cocos2D-x game engine project (its open-source) and how many platforms it supports because its written in C++.

Mainly for game. Most of the mainstream 3D engine are written in C/C++, so for game developer, they can make use of the current c/c++ 3D engine directly without rewriting from scratch.
