Google decided to stop the licensing of Androd's mobile operating system company Huawei, which is likely to affect the company's ambitions to become the largest global smartphone manufacturer.
The US technology giant has suspended business activities with Huawei, which relate to the transfer of hardware, software and key technology services. To this move, Google decided after Washington's decision to put Huawei on the list of companies for which American companies must obtain a license to sell products to Chinese companies.
This essentially means that Huawei will no longer be able to license Google's Android operating system, nor any other services it offers. Instead, Huawei will only be able to use the public OS version of the Android Open Source Project. In other words, Huawei phones will no longer have some of Google's services to which users have become accustomed to this day.
This can have a tremendous impact on Huawei, which relies heavily on Android on phones sold in markets outside of China. In the Chinese market, Huawei otherwise sells a modified version of Android that does not have preinstalled Google Apps (because they are blocked in this country).
If it is assumed that in the first quarter of this year, 49% of sales of Huawei phones were made outside of China and that this company is the second largest in the global market, it is clear how much it will all affect the company. And as Huawei planned to become the world's largest phone vendor next year, this decision by Google will significantly influence the redefinition of their plans.
Of course, neither Huawei sat on his bare hands. He has been preparing for such a scenario for some time, so he announced in March that he is preparing his own operating system, in case there is no possibility of launching Google or Microsoft software on their products.
