Google Hold Off Suspension of Android

The news follows the U.S. Department of Commerce’s blacklisting last week.

  • Google has suspended Android services License Of Huawei.
  • It follows the decision of the US Department of Commerce to allow a 90-day permit to Huawei after last week’s blacklisting of the business.
  • A spokesperson for Google informed Business Insider that the grace period will allow Google to “provide software upgrades and security updates for the next 90 days to current designs.”
  • It’s great news for customers of Huawei who have been panicked by the suspension of Google, with some asking their network operators if they can return their phones.

Google has stated that Chinese tech giant Huawei’s suspension of Android services is on hold.

The move follows the choice of the US Department of Commerce to grant Huawei a 90-day license to assist current clients. Previously, by putting it on an entity list, the department had blacklisted Huawei, forcing US firms to seek public approval before dealing with the firm.

After the blacklisting, Google announced on Monday that its Android operating system used by all Huawei phones had severed ties with Huawei. The news panicked customers from Huawei, some asking their network operators if they could return their devices, and sent scrambling from Huawei to reassure customers about plans for their own operating system.

But up until August 19, Google followed the Department of Commerce in providing Huawei a relief. A source familiar with the issue informed us that the Android suspension had been placed on hold by Google.

In a declaration to Business Insider, Google verified this. “Keeping devices up-to-date and safe is in everyone’s best interest and this temporary license enables us to continue providing current models with software updates and security patches for the next 90 days,” a Google spokesperson said.

Huawei declined to comment on the plans of Google. Trade Secretary Wilbur Ross said that the 90-day grace period is to give businesses time to get their homes in order before cutting them off from Huawei.

“The Temporary General License gives operators time to create additional provisions and room for the Department to determine the suitable long-term steps for Americans and overseas telecommunications suppliers presently relying on critical services Huawei facilities,” he said. “In brief, this permit will allow current mobile phone users in Huawei and rural broadband networks to continue activities.”
