Australian consumers will be able to continue using Google services like Google Play and Gmail on their Huawei phones as they normally would.

Google Android updates will continue to be provided for Huawei EMUI and Google apps will not be affected.

We thank Huawei for its prompt response. In essence, nothing changes for existing Huawei owners or those who buy from existing stocks. You can use Google services.

While Huawei says it will continue to provide Google Android Updates via EMUI that really only relates to the existing version of Android you have. The ban affects all Huawei phones manufactured from this point forward and we look forward to seeing how Huawei handles that.
