Huawei Blacklisted - Google Takes Back Huawei Android License

 It's a chaos for Huawei and people are wondering what really is the ultimate outcome of Huawei Android Phone?

 The U.S. government blacklisted Huawei over the weekend— something which actually accused of offering to help Beijing in gathering intelligence — and threatened to withhold it off from the U.S. software and semiconductors it needs to create its merchandise.
Huwaei Blacklisted - Google Takes Back Huawei Android License
 Google froze Huawei Technologies Co (Huawei Mobile Lincense) from the provision of critical software and components. It makes it more likely that Huawei won't be able to use Google apps anymore, for example. Google play, mail, maps etc. And also will be unable to update Android OS on existing devices on upcoming Android smartphones.


Google said it decided to comply with the US Government's orders, which are crushing its technology trade with China.

 Chip makers which include the Intel Corp., Qualcomm Inc., Xilinx Inc. and Broadcom Inc. said they would not supply Huawei without any further formal notice.


What Does This Mean For Huawei Android Users


  1. There will be no official Android OS updates available to existing Huawei smartphones in the future.
  2. Huawei can only use the open-source Android version but also risk losing access to Google's proprietary applications and services.
  3. The services and apps that will be limited by the enactment of this termination are still under discussion within Google.
  4. Huawei android users will lose access to prominent apps like youtube, Gmail, Chrome and other widely known applications, and this can utterly devastate users of Huawei's western markets where huawei majorly operates.

The dreaded fear of huawei android users is "What Is Our Fate"
