Do you own a Huawei device? Because things could get messy…


Android have said in a Tweet that existing services will continue to work on existing Huawei devices and the move was made to comply with requirements of the U.S. Government.

However, if U.S. politics continue along this trend, future Huawei devices may not feature the official AndroidOS.

And it is still unclear whether updates to current devices won’t knock them out of Google’s network of services.

Original Story

If you own a Huawei device, you may no longer be able to access updates from Google as well as access to the latter’s proprietary apps and services.

This is according to a report by Reuters that Google is suspending all business links with Huawei.

The development follows a move to blacklist the Chinese tech company by the U.S. government.

For owners of the devices, this could affect their access to software and hardware including updates to Google’s Android operating system, the Google Play Store, Gmail, Google Docs and YouTube.

However, there is a public version of Android that Huawei will have access to and the company is reported to have been preparing for such a situation over the past few years.
