Despite differing comments by executives, Huawei said it was interested in continuing to use Google after the US ban last year. Fred Wangfei has previously said that the company has its own alternatives and that even if the US decides to lift the trade ban, Huawei’s priority in restarting Google’s mobile services is not high.

Google’s mobile services (GMS) include the Play Store, Gmail, Maps, and other apps and services created by Google.
A Huawei spokesman told TheVerge by email: “Our preferred Android ecosystem, including Google Mobile Services, puts us in the second position in global smart machine shipments.”
Huawei can still use the Android operating system, but can’t add any Google services. For Mate 30 Pro and other upcoming products, the company has built its own alternative API solutions.
Unfortunately, while Huawei can reproduce the features, the ban has caused great inconvenience to Western customers who rely on commonly used products and services such as Gmail and Google Calendar.
Both Huawei and Google want to obtain the permit, but further confirmation is needed, the spokesman said. In addition, the company is developing A Mobile Services (HMS) and wants to invite more app developers to join.
The proposal has generated a lot of positive interest in Europe, and it is worth noting that Huawei has also been a major contributor to the Android open source operating system over the past five years.
Finally, Huawei regrets that the United States has treated unfairly and blocked the deployment of the company’s 5G infrastructure and related services in markets such as Europe.
