Huawei: Don’t Worry, Facebook and WhatsApp Will Still Work on Our Phones
One of the effects of the Huawei ban announced by the United States government in mid-May is that the Chinese tech company can no longer install apps developed by American companies on its devices.
And these include not only operating systems like Android and Windows, but also other apps developed by Facebook, like the social network app, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
Facebook recently confirmed that it would comply with the US government order, suggesting it would indeed forbid Huawei from installing its apps on new devices.
“We are reviewing the Commerce Department’s final rule and the more recently issued temporary general license and [are] taking steps to ensure compliance,” the social network said.
However, Huawei says this won’t happen.
According to the government ban, Huawei can continue offer software developed by American companies on devices that are already on the market, but on the other hand, it’s not allowed to use it on new models.
