    Post Huawei Blocked from Google Services



    After the company was put on a U.S. government trade blacklist last Thursday, it seems today that forthcoming smartphones from Huawei will not have access to Google services like Gmail and the Play Store—at least not until this mess gets sorted out.

    For the moment, Huawei devices already in use will continue to function normally, as per this statement from the official Android account on Twitter:

    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.
    For future Huawei releases, however, the forecast looks decidedly grim. To comply with government orders it's not just Google denying access to their products but Broadcom, Intel and Qualcomm as well. How much all of this will actually hurt the world's number two OEM is debatable; the company already makes their own smartphone chips and apparently has an in-house backup smartphone OS ready for deployment at any time.

    Could other Chinese smartphone makers like OnePlus be added to the U.S. blacklist? Could China counter by banning all Apple products? Given the current state of affairs anything seems possible.

    I think that China has more to lose here.

    I don't quite understand how the Android ban is supposed to work - commits to AOSP will still be available, will they not? Isn't this just eliminating Huawei's ability to use gApps and access the new code early?

    Looks like the ban has been reversed, at least for the time being:

    That's not "reversed", it's just delayed to allow for normal business closing.

    When I read this, I have only one question "What will be with already bought Huawei phones and their users?" Then, I found this Google's statement: “We are complying with the order and reviewing the implications. For users of our services, Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices". Huawei has also said to TechRadar that it will continue to do all it can to support all its phones currently out in the wild, and is looking at other implications of Google's decision.

    It will force China to develop alternatives and ultimately damage sales of US companies. The way we are throwing sanctions and tariffs around, all countries and companies will do whatever they can to cut the US out of their supply chain.

    US doesn't sell anything valuable in China. So has nothing to lose.

    China is such an unfair market. Did you realize that if a Chinese person wanted to buy an Apple iPhone for example - a product originally assembled in China, the item is considered imported and government charges tariffs on it even if it never left their soil? Top that off with government subsidies given to favorable local companies like Huawei so the cost difference becomes so high that Apple is literally a luxury over there.

    These sanctions on Huawei just might stimulate the smartphone market once again. I have no intentions of upgrading to a new smartphone anytime soon. Why? It's not broken and all my apps are running fine with no slowdown.

    With a new HongMeng/Ark OS on the horizon, I will be tempted to buy a new handset just because I'm bored of my Android handset.

    I think Ark OS has the capability to do well in all of Asia except Korea/Japan as those are basically USA ruled provinces.

    What a controversial assessment - I hope that you really meant that Korea and Japan are friendly and respectful of our intellectual property laws and foreign policies? Not that we rule them?

    America is a huge empire. That's why there are 700+ American military bases all around the world. It rules using puppet politicians.

    The bases are how US helps their friends to protect from Invaders like China. The US military are guests in most of the countries, employing local nationals. The only countries that are less than that might be Germany and Japan, they lost a war.
