P30 Pro Android block: Why your Huawei smartphone is set to lose its most vital feature
Huawei appears aware of the situation and is “monitoring and assessing the potential impact.” We’ll have to wait for official confirmation from either Huawei or Google to find out what is happening for sure, but the intial report from the Washington Post seems pretty damning.
Back in February, Google released a statement saying was happy to continue to work with Huawei with the firm saying: “We have continued to work with Huawei, in compliance with government regulations, to provide security updates and updates to Google’s apps and services on existing devices, and we will continue to do so as long as it is permitted.”
Speaking to The Washington Post last week, Google spokesman Jose Castaneda said it was the temporary general license that had allowed the company to send those updates. It’s unclear what happens now and if P30 Pro and owners of other older handsets are now in for a rocky ride.
