Google restricts Huawei’s use of Android services

According to the Reuters report, tech giant Google has recently restricted Huawei from transferring hardware, software, and technical services to its future mobile devices. This means that new smartphone models from the Chinese brand will lose access to Google’s proprietary apps, such as Google Play, Gmail, YouTube, and Maps, as well as security and software updates. However, it can still get the version of the Android OS through an open-source license known as the Android Open-Source Project that is publicly available.

On the other hand, existing Huawei models will still be able to run mobile apps and receive updates provided by Google.

Reuters also reported that the decision of the Trump administration to put Huawei Technologies to a trade blacklist will also hamper its business transactions with US counterparts.
