Google Warns Huawei Users

By | February 26, 2020


So as you already know that Huawei is banned
from using Google services which means their latest smartphones such as the Huawei Mate
30 Pro and even their upcoming flagship the Huawei P40 Pro won’t have apps like Gmail,
YouTube, Google maps and most importantly the play store. Of course, some Huawei users have found a
way to counter this ban which is to sideload these apps from third-party websites. Now for the first time, Google has come forward
to address the Huawei ban and they are clearly warning users of Huawei phones to not sideload
these Google apps because they can’t confirm whether or not the app is real or has malware
hidden inside. Here’s what they said,
Sideloaded Google apps will not work reliably because we do not allow these services to
run on uncertified devices where security may be compromised. Sideloading Google’s apps also carries a
high risk of installing an app that has been altered or tampered with in ways that can
compromise user security. You see Google puts the certified devices
through its “rigorous” security checks or preloads them with Google Play Protect
software, which can detect when hardware has been compromised. In Huawei’s case, they can’t do that because
of the ban and they are saying there are significant chances that the security of the Huawei phone
can be compromised easily so basically they are saying to not sideload the apps which
also means do not buy their phones. It looks like Trump administration is doing
everything they can to destroy Huawei and their latest plan is to force TSMC which is
the world’s biggest chipmaker who makes SoC’s for Apple, Qualcomm and more from supplying
smartphone chips to Huawei. Now you might be like, wait, isn’t TSMC a
Taiwanese company. Well, that’s right but they use US-made manufacturing
equipment. So now, the US government has proposed a new
rule where companies using American tech must seek license to sell to Huawei. TSMC is the main supplier for the Kirin chipsets
so this is another major blow to Huawei. I mean if this comes through then it would
be impossible for Huawei to make chipsets and inturn smartphones because almost every
production company in China uses the American made machine in one way or another. IF the Google ban didn’t hurt them as much
then this will surely be going to hurt their business because this would literally mean
they can’t make smartphones. We’ll have to wait and see if this actually
goes through because high-level meeting is being held this week but if this goes through
then it will also hurt the US because in the long run companies will try to avoid the US
tech and will try to become independent which would drive the innovation away from the US
and would benefit China. Anyway, let me know your thoughts on this
down in the comments and as always I’ll see you tomorrow…Peace out!

    As far as I'm concerned this is hate because they are growing rapidly and doing well in the market. Google is panicking all by the fault of that Orange man they call a president. We already know how innovative China is and Huawei can find a way especially with Android being an open source. I can see the backfiring if the US stick to that ban.

    This is funny af, guess what would Huawei do if you ban them your your tech? That's right, make their own tech and also aggressively steal US tech. US is basically forcing the Chinese government to put more resources to Huawei and develop all the technology to be independent from US tech reliance. No matter the short term results, the long term will benefit Huawei no matter what because one of the strongest country is behind everything they've got. Good job US, keep forcing China to develop their technology, I LOVE IT.

    Google is funny: they have tracking codes in ALL their apps but then warn of malwares… Their problem is that they don't cash in and can't harvest so much data from users who sideload apps. And, a mobile device without Google spyware is a blessing. There are alternatives to GAPPS which are open-source and not spywares

    This will be a good way for someone to win a few thousand votes at next presidential election, say they will be overturning this ban until proper evidence is provided that Huawei have spyware in their phones.

    I hate Google, Facebook, YouTube and their moral policing. But then I don't trust CCP a bit either. This is the same Google which is removing China uncensored videos from YouTube because its showing truth about Corona virus.

    Wtf with trump now ?!! Why they really want to destroy Huawei ? If they really hate China then just send ballistic missile to destroy them all than all the problem will be solve. They can send missile to kill Iran's General without good reason so why they can do it to China ? Is it because of steve jobs and tim cook jealous to Huawei to take their spot on best selling smartphone cart ?

    This article and Googles statement is just pure scare mongering…. I've got a mate 30 pro and use it every day … Play store works … Play security works….I've received December android security updates…. firmware updates from Huawei … I've seen Google try to stop it by removing the new Huawei phones from safety net which stopped lzplay working and Google pay … There are now new methods to make Google services work and there is no malware involved and the apps are installed from play store so if there is malware it's Google malware.
    You have to remember…. Huawei have gone from partners and allies to competitors over night at no choice of their own … The USA government have forced this and now as far as Google are concerned Huawei is competition.
    Google know a fair share of their users are using Chinese OEM phones … Google have seen Huawei come from nowhere to the second biggest manufacturer in the world…. Google know that despite the ban Huawei have continued to ship phones …. Continued to develop an eco system without them … Offered developers access to other Chinese app stores and a better payment for their apps … Got 5g contracts in USA allies countries.
    Google are scared … Google don't underestimate Huawei and they know if they can't work with them they have to work against them.
    Some people say what is Huawei without Google…but…ask yourself this …. What is Google without Chinese OEMs shipping their software.
    Huawei aren't going to stop , they are going to develop a 3rd eco system and if other Chinese manufacturers jump aboard with HMS services then Google has new competition , Huawei have already teamed up with other Chinese OEMs so when a developer codes an app for Huawei HMS it's released on other Chinese app stores and the Chinese app stores take 50% less money than play store which is quite a bit of difference in revenue.
    Don't forget Google did not play Very nicely with Microsoft when they bought Nokia and were releasing Nokia Windows phones , Google wouldn't let any of their apps on the store and made Microsoft remove better alternatives under copyright law.
    Now Huawei and Google can't work together because of the ban expect similar behaviour from Google

    The easiest sand safest way to get Google apps on a Huawei device.

    Use a device not from Huawei install the apps and then backup the apps and then take the files, transfer them to your huawei device and install them. Problem solved.

    Doing nothing only gets worse and taking a stand might make them innovate or steal even more but also delay them in the mean time.

    Meanwhile the vast majority of Google Play apps are either bloatware, adware or spyware. Why on earth would a shopping list app need permissions to make/ receive phone calls and read my call logs? I doubt Google does much to vet these apps in any serious way. Any reputable app can be verified by MD5 hash and sideloaded with no worries.
