Google has decided to part ways with Huawei, banning the company from further using its globally popular Operating System; the Android. Google made the move to conform to Washington’s decision to put Huawei on the so-called “Entity List”.

“We are complying with the order and reviewing the implications,” a Google spokesperson said on Monday, 20th May. “For users of our services, Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices.”

Apple has been on its decline ever since the demise of its founder Steve Jobs; with the deteriorating quality of equipment, unrealistic prices and no innovation.

Google has decided to suspend all business activities with Huawei that involves the transference of hardware, software, and main technical services. That means, Huawei will not be able to license the Android operating system complete with Google services and will instead have to use an open-source version, open to threats of malicious attacks.

The US government recently forbade other US suppliers to export technology outside of the US without notice; other Huawei suppliers, including Qualcomm and Intel, reportedly told employees they will not sell to the Chinese firm until further notice.

Google’s move to stop licensing its Android mobile operating system to Huawei could deal a huge blow to the Chinese tech giant’s ambitions to become the top player in Smartphones globally. In the third quarter of 2018, Huawei had been number two on the list of the most selling brand, lead only by Samsung. Apple has been on its decline ever since the demise of its founder Steve Jobs; with the deteriorating quality of equipment, unrealistic prices and no innovation.

The Tech giant is in the midst of “real politik”. As US and China started to lock horns in a trade war last year, in December, Canadian authorities arrested Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s CFO and the daughter of Huawei’s CEO/founder, at the request of the US Department of Justice.

In January 2019, US federal prosecutors slammed Wanzhou and Huawei with 23 indictments in total for various crimes, including conspiracy to defraud the US, bank and wire fraud and stealing trade secrets.
