Google has denied the US company Huawei Chinese phone maker, to get some updates to the Android operating system.
The new smartphones, produced by the Chinese company, will also lose access to the Google Apps store and Gmail.
Google said it was “committed to the decisions of the US administration and considering the implications of its decision,” while Huawei did not comment on that move.
Google’s decision, originally reported by Reuters, means Huawei’s phones will lose security updates, technical support and applications such as YouTube and Google Maps.
Huawei said it has made substantial contributions to the development of the Android system around the world.
