Huawei executive said that they wouldn’t go back to using Google Services

Not allowing Google from offering its technical support to Huawei means that Huawei can no longer use the Android operating system and Google Mobile Services (GMS) which include popular Google apps such as YouTube, Gmail and Google Maps. But while they want to create this new thing, they also don't want to make it hard for app developers and so they want to make it as close as possible to Android. In the meantime, Huawei launched its very own OS to be used in the worst-case scenario. The company said it wouldn't return to using Google's Mobile Services and Google's Play Store even if the US' ban is lifted, according to Austrian newspaper Der Standard.

Huawei's Austrian country manager Fred Wangfei told Austrian newspaper Des Standard said that they are now focused on creating a third smartphone ecosystem after Android and iOS as they do not want to be dependent on current U.S. politics as they do not know if eventually, the winds will change once again.

With Huawei having its own solution, Google had urged the USA government to allow doing business with the Chinese company as the company could lose around 700-800 million users. In recent months, reports have revealed that the company is working with other developers to bring apps to the phones.

Huawei's Austrian country manager Fred Wangfei says the company wants to get rid of its dependence on United States politics, as no one could tell if there would be another blockade following the current one.

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. Huawei does not want to be dependent on USA technology, as it may get banned again in the future. Huawei still believes that both companies are still hoping for a license to be granted but in the time being, they are continuing to develop its own Huawei Mobile Services (HMS).

"As a result of the entity listing, we are now developing HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) - inviting app developers to come on board. etc".

It even launched a TV that runs on the Harmony OS but it was launched under its other sub brand, Honor. They will be missing from the global rollout of Huawei's next model, the P40, due out in March, replaced by its own music, payment and other apps.
