Google applies for license in order to give back GMS to Huawei phones


Google

According to a report, Google has applied for an exemption with the US government. It would enable the search giant to re-license Huawei to use its Mobile services. With the US ban which escalated in May 2019, Huawei has been put in the US’ entities list. For that reason, the company lacks access to US and US-related technology. That includes Google’s Mobile Services. The only reason Huawei can keep using Android is due to the Open Source nature of the system and its Linux roots. However, Huawei is prohibited from using Google Mobile Services. That means that if you buy a new Huawei phone you won’t have access to popular apps such as YouTube, Gmail, and Maps.

If Google is exempted by the US government it can immediately give access to Huawei. Microsoft is one company from the United States which was given an exemption and can now work with the Chinese Behemoth. If the US government decides to accept Google’s request, then the search giant will quickly provide updates for Huawei phones allowing them to once again make use of Play Store, Maps, Photos and more.

Huawei has Huawei Mobile Services, but it’s not a full-fledged alternative to Google

Huawei developed Huawei Mobile Services as a GMS Alternative. The company needs to release smartphones to keep its place in the global ranking, and the lack of GMS can’t stop it. The Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro came with HMS. The upcoming Huawei P40 series will also include it. HMS is a good alternative but it has some limitations and does not fit as a full-fledged substitute for Google apps. Especially for users outside of China.

Some users have been resorting to sideloading Google Services on Huawei devices. The search giant, however, warns them that this opens up a door for potential hackers to create fake Google apps. The situation simply shows that Google is not happy with this situation.

    As I said earlier, Google has realised that Huawei has potential to dethrone it’s monopolism hence ts trying to lure Trump into this. But he ain’t that wise…..
    Huawei will and I repeat, will dethrone the Western polices one way or the other….

    Huawei said this though “Huawei phones will never use Google Mobile Services again, according to exec”
    So it’s too late now but they can thank Trump.

    I see google malware is in disparate mode.
    I hope Chinese companies will never work with google.
    Google is not transparent and it is easily under US regime control.
