Separately, President Trump has announced that US firms can now do business with Huawei. This further means that Google can now work with Huawei and continue to sell its Android license to the firm. “While it’s unclear whether that extends to the 5G network technology, it most certainly applies to Google and Android. “Under the terms of the previous ban (national security order), Google was barred from selling an Android license to Huawei,” the PC World reported.
