Facebook has officially suspended Huawei from installing its Facebook Mobile app on Huawei Smartphones. Until now, Huawei was shipping its smartphones with Facebook as a pre-installed app. But from now, the new Huawei Smartphones won’t have the Facebook app.
Huawei Phone users who have received Facebook as Pre-installed app will still be able to use it and will receive regular update of the app. However, the new Huawei Phones won’t be featuring this app and new buyers will have to install the app manually on their phones.
In many markets of the world, Huawei offers a variety of popular apps such as Booking.com, Twitter and many more along with Facebook as pre-installed apps.
No doubts Huawei is one of the most popular and leading smartphone manufacturers in the world. Huawei Phones are best-selling ones in many Asian countries and has been doing great business in the technology market.
Neither Facebook nor Huawei commented on this matter. However, sources have already stated that the upcoming Huawei Phones will no longer have Facebook as a pre-installed app. This is just because of the US ban on purchasing the parts and software of the country by Huawei.
In last May month, Washington banned US Companies from selling their parts and software to the Chinese Smartphone Manufacturer. And now, the issue is wide-spreading to other regions.
Huawei’s smartphones run on Android Operating System. The new Huawei Smartphone users will be able to manually install the app from the Play Store.
The future Huawei Smartphones will not have access to Play Store in the United States until the Government removes the ban from the company.
On the other hand, Huawei has agreed to work with the US market to keep their Smartphone market running within the country. As per the analytics, Huawei has noticed a drastic downfall of their smartphones’ sales over the past few weeks in the European and other countries due to this ban.
