Google bars Huawei from some Android services after Trump order

Google May Suspend Doing Business with Huawei (Report)

Google Will Continue To Support Existing Huawei Phones

In a response to Google opting to comply with the order barring the Chinese company from getting updates to its Android operating system, Huawei said it would continue to provide security updates and services for its smartphones and tablets.

At a regular news briefing in Beijing, China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang earlier Monday said to "wait and see" with regards to what countermeasures the Chinese government and enterprises could take in response to the USA measures against Huawei.

Yesterday, it was reported that Huawei was no longer welcome to use Google's Android operating system (the version of Android that comes with Google's services as treated distinct from AOSP which Huawei or anyone can still use) due to the US Government restricting trade with the firm last week.

It seems that chip suppliers like Intel and Qualcomm will also be barred from doing business with Huawei. While the obvious challenges are with Huawei, companies that rely on trade with the Chinese giant are also threatened.

That's not going to impact Huawei's ability to use the Android operating system on its phone, as that's part of an open source license.

The order, from President Donald Trump last week, prevents "foreign adversaries" from accessing USA technology without government approval. Google will reportedly stop licensing new Huawei phones but now it is officially reassuring existing owners they have nothing to worry about.

The Commerce Department said it had initiated the crackdown because Huawei "is engaged in activities that are contrary to US national security or foreign policy interest".

"As one of Android's key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefitted both users and the industry", a Huawei spokesperson said in a statement obtained by the Wall Street Journal.

"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 told Reuters.

Huawei pointed out the negative impact that this ban will have on the United States economy.

In the last few years, Huawei had gained a lot of ground in the global market, even dethroning Apple from second place in the market. Some of this technology is already being used in products sold in China, the company has said.

The impact is expected to be minimal in the Chinese market.

The listing will have an immediate affect on the telecommunications company, which has significant backing from the Chinese government.
