Google to remove Android from Huawei
American media reported on Sunday that the blow to the Chinese company was necessitated by Google's desire to implement the U.S. government policy which seeks to have the company blacklisted around the world.
For Huawei users' questions regarding our steps to comply w/ the recent US government actions: We assure you while we are complying with all US gov't requirements, services like Google Play & security from Google Play Protect will keep functioning on your existing Huawei device.— Android (@Android) May 20, 2019
"We are complying with the order and reviewing the implications," a Google spokesperson was quoted saying.
However the Android Twitter account posted that current users will still have access to Google services.
America on Thursday added Huawei Technologies Co Ltd to a trade blacklist. The company is accused of using its products for spying purposes.
