- Google has recently suspended its ties with Huawei
- The Trump administration has added Huawei in their trade blacklist
- Huawei cannot use Google apps at the moment
It has been reported that Google has suspended its ties with Chinese-owned mobile company, Huawei. KAMI learned that the suspension had something to do with the Trump administration’s blacklist.
In a report by the Reuters (Angela Moon), Huawei will be losing it access to Google’s Android operating system and its future versions or updates, as well as to Youtube, Gmail, Chrome browser, and Google Play.
However, those who currently have their Huawei devices can still enjoy its services. Android shared on Twitter that Google Play will still work in the existing Huawei devices.
"Huawei will only be able to use the public version of Android and will not be able to get access to proprietary apps and services from Google," a source said.
Huawei has been added to the trade blacklist by the Trump administration on Thursday. The recent action will make it extremely difficult for Huawei to do business with U.S. counterparts.
However, the details of the specific services involved in the ban are still being discussed. Huawei and the U.S. Commerce Department have yet to comment on the issue.
