Google allows Huawei to keep using Android until August
May 22, 2019, 00:41
The Trump administration insists the sanctions are unrelated to its escalating trade war with China, and many analysts see it as aimed at pressuring USA allies in Europe to accede to Washington's entreaties to exclude Huawei equipment from their next-generation wireless networks, known as 5G.
Yesterday, the Commerce Department granted Huawei a license buy USA goods until August 19 to maintain existing telecoms networks and provide software updates to Huawei smartphones.
Huawei is said to have stockpiled enough chips and other vital components to keep its business running for at least three months.
On Sunday, Reutersreported citing a person familiar with the matter that Alphabet Inc's Google suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of technical service, hardware and software except what is publicly available via open-source licensing. "We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally", they said.
The Commerce Department said it will evaluate whether to extend the license period beyond 90 days.
That move by Google was a result of the Trump administration's addition of Huawei to a trade blacklist that restricts its ability to do business with USA companies.

As a result, Google revoked Huawei's Android license.
