Huawei will not be able to use Google apps and services

The economic war between the United States and the People’s Republic of China has resulted in a shocking blow to mobile technology giant Huawei. According to Reuters, Google has terminated its partnership with Huawei, the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer.

This partnership between Google and Huawei covered the use of all Google hardware, software and technical services. In other words, Huawei will not be able to use a full-fledged Android version on the smartphones it will release in the future, except for Android versions with open source licenses.

Moreover, future Huawei phones will not have the Play Store, the official app store of the Android operating system. In addition, popular services such as YouTube and Gmail will not be accessible. Google’s decision came right after the US blacklisted Huawei. This blacklist prevents Huawei from doing business with companies like Qualcomm, Intel, and Google. Google was the first company to take action after the decision.

Although the decision prevents an American company from collaborating with Huawei, it could affect the entire smartphone industry. Because it is not clear how much Huawei smartphones, which cannot access the Android operating system and Google services, will sell in Europe, Asia and other markets. Decreasing Huawei’s sales means opening up jobs for other companies.

The last thing we should mention; This break between Google and Huawei is expected to affect future Huawei smartphones. Existing Huawei phones do not need a Google permission to receive app updates. However, the same is not the case for Android version upgrades and security updates.
