Facebook bans their apps from future Huawei devices

Published on June 8th, 2019 by Duncan McClean.

Facebook yesterday announced that they were banning their apps from being installed on future Huawei devices.

It comes after the Trump Administration blocked American companies from doing any business with the Chinese technology firm which meant Google had to ban the Google Play Store and all of their other apps from Huawei phones.

Facebook apps include Messenger, Instagram and Whatsapp.

Those who currently own a Huawei device will remain able to install and update Facebook apps on their phones.

Huawei has not commented on the situation.

Last week, Huawei and Russia signed a partnership for Huawei to provide equipment to run Russia's next generation 5G network.
