Representatives of Alphabet Inc., the holding company founded by Google
(which is also part of it), have confirmed that cooperation with the
Chinese company Huawei has, to a large extent, been finished. Alphabet
Inc.'s decision is related to an earlier decision of the US Department
of Commerce to put Huawei Technologies and 70 affiliated companies on
the so-called blacklist.
The Chinese company will almost immediately lose access to updates of Google's Android mobile operating system. The next generation of Chinese smartphones will not have access to popular applications and services offered by Google Play Store, such as Gmail and Youtube.
