Huawei is done with Google for good

But at the same time, there's no doubt that Huawei will continue investments in its own operating system, especially as it wants to reduce reliance on American firms that would make it vulnerable should any further sanctions be announced in the coming years.

The largest hit that Huawei took in a consumer sense was the removal of supply of Google apps and services for their upcoming phones, leading to the situation where the Huawei Mate 30 Pro launched here in Australia in a Google-free state.

However, company spokespersons outside of Austria shared different opinions to other western journalists.

Chinese smartphone users rallied behind Huawei in 2019, and the company's smartphone sales rose while it was being singled out during the Trump administration's trade war with China, according to The New York Times.

The ban led to Huawei building its own alternative, but building something that can compete against Google Play Services is a hard challenge, even for one of the world's largest smartphone makers.

Huawei has been making some great phones over the past few years, rapidly increasing its market share in several key markets around the world in addition to China. Roland Quandt, who broke the story with the help of Andreas Proschofsky, tweeted in English saying "Huawei just said they will never go back to using official Android with Google services on their devices".

Fei reiterated that the company wants to get rid of its dependence on USA politics while also suggesting that it is ruling out a return to Google's ecosystem even if the option were to be made available to it in the future. Although the OS may or may not be completely ready, Huawei has remained committed to the same. Its three-billion-dollar investments in Huawei Mobile Services and additional one-billion-dollar expenses for global ad campaigns promoting its Google-less future probably won't help the company stay in the black, either. As the name implies, the platform will be an alternative to Google Play Services.

As Huawei was left without a stable app ecosystem, it started working on its own operating system and launched the same within months - HarmonyOS. Huawei's plan is to create a third smartphone ecosystem based on Android, but without Google's services. Hence its decision to completely ditch Google Services, despite sounding risky, does make sense.
