Last week, the US president Donald Trump imposed a ban on Chinese smartphone Giant Huawei for doing any kind of business with the company due to some security reasons. Following the blacklist of US ban order, Google has now ceased working with Huawei entirely. According to a report, future devices Huawei devices won’t have any services with Google including Play store service.
Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei had told reporters on Saturday that “we have already been preparing for this. It is expected that Huawei’s growth may slow, but only slightly. Policies that threaten trading partners one after another rob companies of risk-taking attitudes and the U.S. will lose credibility.”
According to a new report from Reuters, Google has taken some steps towards immediate ending business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware and/or software products. It means that the Google play store, Play Services, and partnership within the Android operating system itself will no longer be given to Huawei.
For the record, other important details are still being discussed among the Google company. This ban would restrict Huawei only to using the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). As for the future devices, the play store would not be supported by the plus Google’s own app like Gmail or Chrome would not be available either.
However, Google is still thinking about how to tackle this matter, Huawei too is working to sort this situation as most of the Huawei features and OS dependent on Google. This ban system might affect those devices who had been sold with a promise of future Android updates, such as the promised Q updates could see the trouble with Play Store access.
Huawei tweeted: “The U.S. is resorting to the same measures of restrictive state controls and trade barriers that it accuses China of using in their trade war.”
In a nutshell, losing Google major services as well as its features will cost a great fortune to Huawei business, because Andriod lovers will no longer buy these phones as it doesn’t support Android OS. On the other hand, Huawei has previously mentioned they are working on their own OS which could replace Android on Huawei devices but even that would prove a huge loss for the company.
