FB stops Huawei from pre-installing apps on phones

Huawei from doing business Huawei “HongMeng” OS trademarked in many countries

If the company does manage to ultimately reach its objective, it may not need developers to build apps specifically for Huawei's Android and Play Store alternatives either. The trade war between the US and China is wreaking havoc with Huawei's relationship with Google. In the wake of recent United States sanctions, Google will no longer offer official Android support to Huawei.

Unfortunately for Huawei, the day of reckoning has come early and suddenly, as despite so many years of preparation and "thousands" of internal tests, the HongMeng program remains unfinished.

Consumers who now own existing Huawei smartphones with Facebook apps, however, will continue to be able to use and download app updates.

To incentivize developers, Huawei is promoting the fact that it has shipped over 350 million phones over the previous year, all with direct access to AppGallery.

Huawei is intensively testing its own operating system, to be named "HongMeng OS" for China market or "Oak OS" for overseas market, which is likely to be launched in August or September, China's Global Times newspaper said on Friday, citing unnamed sources. There are 270 million monthly active users, Huawei says. A few developers have received the invite in their email just a few hours ago to join AppGallery with the assurance of getting full support from Huawei and they can join the Huawei Developer Portal for free. It is worth noting that Google has adviced the U.S. government against excluding Huawei from using the Android System. For many, and writing is on the wall and for a good reason because a device without the Play Store and Google applications/ services is practically unsaleable outside China.

Putting Huawei on the entity list does not affect devices sold until the aforementioned deadline significantly. "Facebook is suspending app preinstalls on Huawei smartphones out of the box", said Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group (IIG), CyberMedia Research (CMR).

This also means updates for those who have Huawei devices will stop coming and at the end, they will eventually lose the functionality of those apps.
