According to the latest data, about 2.5 billion Android devices and devices from the brand Huawei are currently used worldwide. How Media Transfers, Google firm Alphabet Inc. recently suspended cooperation with China’s Huawei, which requires the transfer of hardware, software and technical services, other than those that are available through open source licensing.
This in fact means that a technological giant could lose access to updates to Google’s Android operating system, or rather, the next version of Android smartphone might lose access to popular services, such as, for example, Google Play Store, Gmail, YouTube.
Currently, Google is currently in-house discussing the details of the services to which this suspension relates, and Huawei’s lawyers are studying the blacklist’s impact. The extent to which these changes will affect Huawei is not yet known, while some experts are suspicious of the ability of the company to continue operating without US support, media reports.
Huawei will still have access to the Android version of the operating system that is available through an open source license known as the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), which is freely available to anyone who wants to use it.
