Huawei x Google again?


Huawei has been on the so-called "Entity List" by the US due to "national security" allegations. It has prevented Huawei from loading its new phones with Google products including the Play Store app market.
More than 1.07 million developers have registered to Huawei to ensure more apps will be available for its users

Since then, Huawei has launched its own Huawei Mobile Services with the AppGallery on its new devices including the Mate 30 series, the new Mate Xs foldable, and even budget phones such as the Y7p.

This move by Google could be similar to what Microsoft did, a company who got an exemption and can now work with Huawei.

If Google can get a similar license, Google can let Huawei its Mobile Services again including Play Store, Maps, Photos, YouTube, Gmail, and more.

Huawei has previously said that it can easily update its devices without Google once they are allowed to use Google again.

Until then, Google has warned users not to sideload Google on Huawei devices.

Currently, Huawei is the world's second-biggest smartphone maker and it is obvious that Google doesn't want that piece of the pie to go without its services.

In 2019, Huawei has sold around 240 million units worldwide. 7 million of them are Mate 30 high-end phones without Google.

Chinese brands Huawei, Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo recently formed an alliance to create a platform for developers outside of China that can upload apps onto all their app stores simultaneously.

If successful, this could pose a challenge to Google's dominance in the smartphone space.
