“We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally,” Huawei said in a statement.
“Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android’s key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefitted both users and the industry,” the company said.
In fact Google, through its Android’s twitter page, said that for Huawei users’ questions regarding our steps to comply with the recent US government actions: We assure you while we are complying with all US governments’s requirements, services like Google Play & security from Google Play Protect will keep functioning on your existing Huawei device.
Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group, CyberMedia Research (CMR), said that “The Android ban is a death sentence for Huawei-Honor’s growth aspirations in India. While the ban may not impact Huawei in China or the US, it will have a global impact, especially in markets such as Europe and India.”
“The ban will accelerate Huawei’s efforts to gain self-reliance. Huawei has been focused on developing its software and app assets along the lines that it has done with its chipset business,” he added.
