BAD NEWS! Google Blocks Huawei To Use Android

According to the latest reports, from now on Huawei smartphones will not be able to install any Android updates, updates to Google Play apps, or use apps like Gmail, Chrome, etc. However, the fact is that, if you want then you can simply access those Android updates through the open source channel that exists but without the technical support or advice from the tech giant Google. This decision may unleash a trade war between China and the United States which was already initiated, with unforeseeable consequences, which may affect all technological markets and the world economy. And do not forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones as we told earlier.

BAD NEWS! Google Blocks Huawei To Use Android

According to the well-known media portal, Reuters, just after the refusal of Donald Trump and the United States to the well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturer, of course, Huawei, the tech giant Google announced the breakdown of commercial relations with the well-known Chinese brand, Huawei. As the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer, Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail.

What does it mean?

It’s a complex issue and no one, including Google and Huawei, knows how the exact details will play out yet. Many security experts were concerned in the wake of the announcement that current Huawei users wouldn’t receive security updates. But Google was quick to reassure people that current Huawei phones will continue to have access to services including Google Play and security from Google Play Protect.

In simple words, from now on Huawei smartphones will not be able to install any Android updatesupdates to Google Play apps, or use apps like GmailChrome, etc. However, the fact is that, if you want then you can simply access those Android updates through the open source channel that exists but without the technical support or advice from the tech giant Google.

Hence, for this reason, a senior manager of the Chinese smartphone brand, Huawei was arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. As recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to the well-known media portal, Reuters, the tech giant Google would have been the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like QualcommIntelNVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.

The details are still confusing, as there is still no official communication from both companies, but according to Reuters, the Chinese brand Huawei’s lawyers are already working on the issue.
