San Francisco: With US President Donald Trump providing a reprieve to Huawei, less than a month after blacklisting the Chinese telecom giant, American tech titan Google can now work with it and continue to sell its Android license to the smartphone maker. The move is also going to help its sub-brand HONOR.

“While it’s unclear whether that extends to the 5G network technology that Huawei is developing, it most certainly applies to Google and Android.

“Under the terms of the previous ban (national security order), Google was barred from selling an Android license to Huawei, meaning its phones could use the base open-source code, but would not have access to the all-important Play Store and Google apps,” the PC World reported on Saturday.

The previous restrictions meant Google was barred from selling an Android license to Huawei, meaning its phones could use the base open-source code, but would not have access to the all-important Play Store and Google apps.

A temporary licence was issued soon which allowed Google to support and update the Android OS currently running on existing Huawei devices.

However, it was affecting the development of future products. (IANS)
