Google Suspends its Android Support to Huawei

By Noor Mani — Published on 21/05/2019

Huawei has been taking over the smartphone industry by storm with the Chinese company recently becoming the second biggest smartphone maker by overtaking Apple. But now it looks as if Huawei’s growth will hit a speed breaker. Google announced that it has suspended business with Huawei which needs the transfer of technical, software, and hardware services. Only those services that are publicly open and are open sourced platform will continue to work for Huawei in a big blow to the Chinese giant. The move comes as the United States looks to blacklist Huawei all over the world having fears that the company is spying on the US.


It is expected that after the suspension, Huawei phones will lose access to all future possible OS updates while some of the Google Apps may also not function on Huawei phones. The news comes as a big blow to Huawei that has been releasing new smartphones and was quickly taking the Android market as well. People who have been using Huawei handsets will continue to use services including Google Play Store while the future versions of Huawei smartphones will lose access to Google services like Play Store, YouTube, and Gmail App.

It hasn’t been a good period for Huawei as the US added Huawei to its trade blacklist which makes it difficult for the company to do business with US companies. Huawei, on the other hand, has a Plan B for all the restrictions that are being imposed. The company is believed to have developed its own operating system called HongMeng OS. It is believed that the company had been working on its OS for quite some time now due to its difference with the United States. According to reports, the new OS will be trialed out and will replace Android OS in the future.
