Huawei has been hit a huge business blow as some US companies are now complying with the ban the US government slammed on the 2nd biggest phone manufacturer in the world.
Leading the pack is Google which has reportedly suspended some of its business with Huawei as the U.S. government has attempted to blacklist the Chinese tech company.
Google is suspending some dealings with Huawei that require transferring hardware and software between the companies.
Huawei will reportedly no longer be able to access Android updates, the Gmail app, the Google Play store and new versions of Google phones outside of China.
Some details of the stoppage were reportedly still being talked over within Google.
The U.S. government last week added Huawei to a trade blacklist, which would make it more difficult for the corporation to work with U.S. firms after President Trump passed an executive order on the issue. Companies placed on the “Entity List” are considered to be national security threats.
U.S. authorities have said that Huawei’s close connections to the Chinese Communist Party could result in spying in places where the company has the hardware. Huawei has denied this.
“We are complying with the order and reviewing the implications,” a Google spokesperson said.
The administration has moved against Huawei and other Chinese technology companies after the two countries failed to come to a trade agreement this month and both said they would increase tariffs on the other’s products.
Meanwhile, Bloomberg now reports that Intel, Qualcomm, and Broadcom, three of the world’s leading chip designers and suppliers, are cutting off their dealings with the Chinese company, effective immediately.
