Huawei company is facing a lot of issues lately due to the ban by the U.S. companies including Google. Moreover, Google will not allow Huawei to use its Android operating system on any of the Huawei or Honor devices. This is the reason why Huawei has been developing a new operating system that would surprisingly support Android applications. But, this would not be done directly via Google’s Play Store rather, the user can sideload the app like they do for any of the application downloaded from third-party sources.
You may also very well know that all the Google services including Maps and Play Store will be banned for usage in any of the Huawei or Honor devices.
