Last year, Google stopped providing non-public software to the company to comply with a US blacklist.
Huawei says that phones that were released before it was put on the entity list have not been impacted and will keep getting updates.
As for the new devices which do not feature Google Mobile Services (GMS), updates will be managed through Huawei’s AppGallery.
Google is yet to corroborate Huawei’s claim
Google had previously said it would keep providing updates as long as the government lets it do so. There is no indication from its side that it will continue sending out updates now that the temporary general license has expired.
The Commerce Department recently said that the license will not be extended.
