Huawei device owners will not be able to use Google services such as the Play Store, YouTube, gmail coke. In addition, Huawei and Honor smartphones will not receive future Android updates.
This will have a major impact on the company, since Huawei has millions of users around the world. All of them will be forced to be excluded from the services at Google. It seems only in China will not be the difference, because Google is already forbidden.
For this reason, Huawei wants to create its own operating system so that customers do not have problems.
Of course, Huawei's exclusion will also affect Google as it loses a large number of users.
What do we know about Huawei's new operating system?
Rumors have it that Huawei is designing its own operating system from 2012. Richard Yu, chief executive of the company, has provided some information. According to him, the new operating system will include a "future-oriented microkernel". Possible release date is either 2019 autumn or 2020 spring.
The new operating system is not only for smartphones, but also for other Huawei devices such as tablets, TVs, cars, smart wearables and even computers.
But even if it does all this, the problem remains. What will happen to all of these Google services that users have been using for so many years now and will no longer use them?
Is it possible to launch the new operating system immediately?
The Independent, in a exhibition , says that the new operating system is codenamed "Project Z" and is currently far from reality.
According to the report, Huawei should rely on third-party application developers to create an application ecosystem for its operating system.
On the other hand, Yu reports that Huawei's new operating system will support web and Android applications so users do not have difficulty when switching to the new platform.
However, it is not just the Android application support, which must concern the company. What will happen to many popular services such as Netflix, Amazon, Snapchat, Tinder, Facebook, Uber, Discord etc?
The secret app store
Beyond the app store, which the company has in Chinahas also released an app named App Gallery, which includes apps for its smartphones outside of China.
Huawei has suggested that many developers bring Android apps to App Gallery. Huawei, in turn, will help them become known in China, the largest smartphone market in the world.
With the new app store, Huawei plans to expand into Europe. Essentially, he tries to compete with the Play Store. It does not stay, rather than wait to see if it will succeed.
It is not unlikely that he will be able to create an international app store. However, it will probably not be easy, after being blocked by Google.
The problems that Huawei faces at the moment are many. All we can do is wait and see if it will finally be able to release its own operating system and maintain its market.
