A good news for Huawei fans out there. A new insider tip has it that Google is trying to apply for an exemption license with the US Government which will allow the search engine giant to continue doing business with the “Blacklisted” Chinese company which when granted, users of Huawei smartphones will get the Android version licensed by Google in minutes.
Its worth remembering that Huawei lost the good favor of the US government completely last year when i was placed on the entity list while citing security reasons. The ban led to Google been banned from working with the Chinese tech giant making Huawei innovate it’w own Mobile Service.
While there have been couple of ups and downs, Microsoft somehow got exempted allowing them to continue working with Huawei but then Google might be next to do the same.
If Google is granted a similar exemption Huawei can immediately update its current devices with Google Mobile Services (meaning apps and services like the Play Store, Maps, Photos, YouTube and Gmail can run on Huawei’s Android smartphones).
The current Huawei Mobile Services is a self-made GMS alternative which lacks some really important applications and software updates relevant to most people right outside of China and it’s territory.
Even though one of Huawei’s executive had at a point spoken against the company going back in with Google as they look ahead to either move completely to their own in-house Operating system which is called the “Harmony OS” or just continue using the AOSP (Android Open Source Project).
Google had however warned that the lack of the secured AOSP could eventually lead to potential user’s data compromise leading to an actual threat just which Huawei is being accused of though the company had denied endlessly to not be involved in creating backdoors on it’s devices.
If or when Google will get an exemption to work with Huawei remains unclear but we hope to hear a good news before the Mate 40 Series gets released later on this year.
