Google has the control of the Android operating system more than we realize, and now, companies do not have such as Huawei any other option is to bow at the US giant. Although the Android operating system is an open source, the technology giant has full control over the applications and services that make this system valuable.

Google’s strong grip appeared on the system Android in full on Sunday when Reuters reported that the company would withdraw its license from Huawei, a Chinese company specialized in the manufacture of smart phones.

According to the Business Insider, as long as the Trump’s ban continues, devices will be allowed Huawei, the manufacturer runs an open source operating system for the Android system, but it will not be able to access favorite applications and services, such as Chrome, Gmail or YouTube to take advantage of regular updates and security updates.

Although it is widely known that the giant Android platform has acquired a large share of the operating system market, it has long been painted as a more “open” alternative to its only rival Apple which has an operating system iOS.

Frank Gillett, chief analyst at FERC, said Google’s control over the system Android , coupled with the fact that it is the only viable operating system for today’s smart phone manufacturers, has made Huawei in a very difficult situation.

Huawei still be able to access an app store Google Play and the protection of integrated malware, after the decision of the US government to give the Chinese company a 90-day period.

A spokesman for Google said “Keeping the phones updated and safe is in everyone’s interest. This temporary license allows us to continue to provide software updates and security patches for existing models over the next 90 days.“He said.
