Huawei and Google have canceled the release of smart speakers and other joint projects due to US sanctions

Against the backdrop of growing sales of Huawei gadgets and optimistic forecasts, there are many moments when US sanctions

ruined the life of a Chinese manufacturer. For example, in collaboration with Google Corporation.

What happened

The media found that the Android operating systemand Google services are not the only controversial issues after the appearance of the “blacklist”. In fact, Huawei and Google worked on several joint projects that had to be abandoned due to American sanctions.

For example, this is a Huawei smart speaker with GoogleAssistant, work on which lasted more than a year. It was planned to be presented at the IFA 2019 exhibition in Berlin in September this year, but the project ultimately had to be cancelled.

There were other joint gadgets in development, as well as Huawei smartphones compatible with Android Auto.

What about the sanctions?

It's been a month since U.S. PresidentDonald Trump promised to improve relations with China and lift the ban on cooperation with Huawei. However, things are still there: the American government has not yet moved from words to actions.

Over the past month, about 35 companies have submitted approximately 50 requests to trade with Huawei, but none of them have yet received permission.
