Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

 

Hey everyone, 

 

We understand your concerns and Google stated that basic services would still function on the Android operating system used in Huawei's current smartphones and existing smartphone owners would not lose access to its Google Play app store or security features.

 

Therefore, if you have a Huawei smartphone, you will continue to have access to Google apps. Google has also said that services like Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices.

 

Huawei Canada has also announced it will continue to provide security updates and after sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphones, and to tablets that have already been sold or are still in stock globally.

 

You will also still be able to get Google Apps updates and Android dispatches.

 

If you have specific questions about Google’s announcement or Huawei’s operations, it would be best to contact them directly for further information.

 

Huawei will announce the support status of Android Q shortly, so please keep an eye out for Huawei’s announcement or reach out directly to Huawei Canada.

I'm sorry, you WANT a Huawei device if it's not supported by Google? I'm confused! Exactly why do you want a lame duck OS without updating?

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

Let me be absolutely clear.  I want a new (Non-Huawei) phone from Fido if the android operating system for my Huawei phone will no longer be supported by Google!

 

That is I want my Huwaei phone replaced by Fido for a different brand! 

 

I hope that is clear to the discussion group.

At this time, the Huawei-Google story is based from Reuters "sources" .

The "sources" must be verified, and/or more clear before Huawei owners should panic.

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

Is Huawei Canada referring specifically to Google security updates?

 

What about Google Apps?

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

Here the deal.

You can still access goggle apps until a new Android update.

If you want upgrade to Android 10, it will be without Google apps, no more  playstore etc...

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

Yeah...that's not acceptable.  Why should I continue to pay for an Android (Huawei) phone and not be entitled to the new Android 10 OS.

 

I repeat I want a new phone from Fido if the new Android 10 operating system for my Huawei phone will no longer be supported by Google!

Re: Google Support for Huawei Mobile Devices

No news from fido.

The value of my phone drops every minutes since Huawei ban.

But Fido just saying "you still have security updates".

But when I buy an android phone it's not for security updates. It's for real update like Android Q
