The shocking revelation further reiterates that Facebook has confirmed to Reuters that very soon it won't allow Huawei to preinstall their app on their devices. Another is that people who buy phones with Google Services generally stick to apps available in the Google Play Store, which are more rigorously checked for security than what you'll find on other stores. We have to wait and see how Huawei picks up from this hassle; reports suggest Huawei has already been preparing for this ban, and the company is said to be working/testing on its own operating system called HongMengOS as Google had canceled the Android License.
As trade tensions with China increased, the Trump administration zeroed in on Huawei, which has favored status with the Chinese government and is one of the largest companies in that country.
Along with the ban, the U.S. has lobbied its allies to avoid partnerships with the company, claiming that the Chinese government has control over its activities and accusing the firm of installing "backdoor" access tools in its devices to allow Beijing to spy on its users. Huawei also states that its AppGallery has over 270 million monthly active users, although detailed app store data might be more important for developers contemplating publishing on Huawei's app store.
As such, Huawei is said to have recently shipped 1 million HongMeng-based smartphones for pre-release evaluation purposes.
"Consumers can still install apps via the Google Play Store", he pointed out. Along with that, the Chinese company is promising to support developers and invites them to join its developers community for free. The company recently signed a deal with Russian Federation to develop 5G technology in collaboration with MTS. To be honest, we don't doubt Huawei could survive on its own.
The NDAA, signed by the US President in 2018, includes a ban on US agencies, and on recipients of federal grants and loans, from doing business with Chinese firms or with contractors that make substantial use of the companies' products. The retailer believes that Huawei will survive using a new software that is developed in house and might be much better than Google's.
Google has said that denying Huawei access to Android will hurt U.S. national security, too, but perhaps that's not Google's only motivation behind supporting Huawei.
