Huawei no longer allowed to pre-install Facebook apps on its smartphones

Friday 7 June 2019 | 11:02 CET | News
Facebook said it will no longer allow its apps to get pre-installed on Huawei phones, Facebook told Reuters. Customers who already have Huawei phones will still be able to use Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagramm apps and receive updates. People will still be able to download the apps from the Google Playstore. But that said, future versions of Huawei phones will not have access to the store and its apps unless the US government reverses its ban on the company.
