Google Warns Huawei Users Not To Sideload Google Apps
We all are aware of the US Government not allowing US companies to work with Huawei. And as a result, Huawei had to launch its flagship model Huawei Mate 30 Pro without Google Play services and apps outside China. Now to address these issue Huawei users were sideloading google apps like Youtube, Gmail, Google maps, etc from third-party apps and websites.
Google says, “Because of the government restrictions described above, new Huawei device models made available to the public after May 16, 2019, have not been able to go through this security process nor will they have Play Protect preloaded. As a result, they are considered “uncertified,” and will not be able to utilize Google’s apps and services.”
Google also adds, Sideloaded google apps on uncertified devices will not work reliably and there will be a high risk of users’ data security. To check if your device is Google certified or not, just go to Google Play Store app>Menu>Settings. You will find “Device is certified” written at the bottom under Play Protect Certification.
Huawei and Honor are all set to launch their new smartphones with Huawei Mobile Service (HMS) on February 24, in Barcelona. Huawei Mobile Service brings services like Huawei App Gallery, Huawei ID, mobile cloud, Huawei Themes and more. Huawei is also adding apps for navigation, gaming, messaging and payments.
Now despite the ban, Huawei ended-up on 2nd place in Top Global Smartphone Manufacturer list of 2019, according to Canalys. Not only that Huawei’s annual growth also went up by 17%.
