On Monday, the US Commerce Department issued a 90-day reprieve on the transfer of technology to give Huawei a temporary licence to buy US-made goods in order to maintain existing networks and provide software updates to existing phones.
The US has ramped up action against Huawei - the world's largest telecommunications equipment producer - over concerns that its technology may be used as a backdoor for spying by the Chinese government. It will likely have implications beyond the U.S., too, as Huawei phones are popular worldwide and not being able to improve the base software is going to be a huge problem for the company's customer base. The moves threatened to materially harm Huawei's mobile devices and networking businesses. Outside China is a different story; Huawei has huge markets in places like Europe and India where Google's Android app ecosystem is the only viable option. And though existing Huawei users can still download popular Google apps through the Google Play store, they won't be available on future Huawei handsets.
USA firms could lose up to $56.3 billion United States in export sales over five years from stringent export controls on technologies involving Huawei or otherwise, the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation said in a report.
According to TechRadar, the tech giant has declined to comment on whether they would continue in this role, saying "we have nothing to share". The Commerce Department also permitted Huawei to purchase USA products for a 90-day period.
Despite this, Huawei will continue purchasing chips from US companies and selling Huawei products to USA clients, he said, despite mounting restrictions from the USA government.

For that reason, Washington has pushed its closest allies to reject Huawei technology, a significant challenge given the few alternatives for 5G.
Some may think this is merely a fortuitous happenstance, but with threats of banning Huawei from using United States tech and software going back several years, a future without the Play Store is something Huawei has had ample time to prepare for.
