Facebook bars Huawei from pre-installing its apps

Depending on the market, it is normal for smartphone makers to include pre-installed apps on their new smartphones as part of a special arrangement with various providers.

What just happened? Another day, another U.S. company distancing itself from Huawei.

According to Reuters, Facebook is getting ready to pull out its support for future Huawei handsets, planning to no longer allow the pre-installation of the social networking giant's insane popular apps on the Chinese tech behemoth's mobile devices. The US government granted the search giant a 90-day reprieve after Huawei was blacklisted, meaning even phones not yet shipped or built will still receive updates and come with Google services pre-installed.

The social network giant is reportedly pulling its apps from Huawei devices. This new restriction is only applicable to brand new Huawei devices that have not left the factory. This brings added convenience to consumers who would otherwise have to actively download the apps from the Google Play store or another source.

Sheldon Cottrell contender for catch of tournament
Both Australia and West Indies are full of match-winners, which makes the contest interesting. Put into bat first, defending champions Australia were all out on 288 runs.

The Chinese company declined to comment on Facebook's decision.

Facebook is no longer allowing pre-installation of its apps on Huawei phones, the latest blow for the Chinese tech giant as it struggles to keep its business afloat in the face of a USA ban on its purchase of American parts and software.

Huawei isn't giving up without a fight, challenging the ban in U.S. courts. Soon afterwards, Google cut Huawei off from future Android updates, before temporarily resuming work. Future versions of Huawei phones, however, will not have access to the Google Playstore and its apps unless the United States government changes course.
