Google asks the US for permission to collaborate with Huawei again

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Google asked the U.S. government for permission to resume cooperation with Huawei, which was forced to cease due to U.S. sanctions against the Chinese company in May 2019.

According to Android Authority with reference to the German portal Finanzen, Google Vice President for Android Samir Sama made such a request to the US government. True, so far there has been no reaction from the White House.

Google decided to take such a step after the US government began to issue individual US companies temporary permissions to do business with Huawei. So, in November 2019, the United States allowed Huawei to install Windows operating systems on its MateBook line of laptops.

One of the biggest difficulties that arose due to US sanctions, Huawei faced with a ban on the use of Google Mobile Services software on their new phones and tablets.

The Chinese are actively developing their own alternative – Huawei Mobile Services and the App Gallery app store instead of the now unavailable Google Play Market. But, as Richard Yu, general director of the consumer electronics division of Huawei Consumer Business Group, noted, in the event of resuming cooperation with Google, the company will immediately update the Mate 30 series smartphones, returning the services of the American company to them.

Recall that the US government imposed sanctions after Huawei was accused of espionage. The Chinese company denies the allegations.
