Huawei and Google suspend their smart speaker because of Trump ban

Before Trump restricted Huawei's access to US technology suppliers, Huawei and Google jointly developed a new Huawei-branded smart speaker, foreign media The Information reported. According to the original plan, like Google's own Home speakers, Huawei's speakers will be driven by Google Assistant to respond to users' voice commands. Huawei had intended to announce the Huawei-branded speaker product at this year's (IFA), an international consumer electronics show in Berlin, Germany, to bring it to the global market and sell it online to US consumers.
But in May, the company's partnership with Google's smart speakers was quickly lifted as US President Donald Trump (Donald Trump) imposed trade restrictions on Huawei.
We have been working with Google on this project for a year and have made a lot of progress. And then it all stopped. One Huawei employee, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said. A Huawei spokesman declined to comment, and the Google representative did not respond to requests for comment sent by email.
Huawei has been Google's main business partner for years: Huawei phones use the Android operating system, Huawei smartwatches use Google's operating system, The smart speaker project, which has never been reported before, highlights the breadth of Google's partnership with Huawei.
The Information said the Huawei smart speakers, which were forced to be shelved, "show that the relationship between Google and Huawei is closer than previously understood," but this is debatable. Over the past few years, Huawei has been steadily rolling out devices that run Google software, from mobile phones to Wear OS smartwatches. The two companies had been close until suspicion of Huawei by the US government suddenly forced the two companies to break off their partnership and force Huawei to use an open source version of the Android system.
The Trump government is weighing whether and how to relax the restrictions. Trump told executives from US technology companies such as Google, Intel and Qualcomm last week that he would decide "in time" whether to allow sales to Huawei, according to the New York Times and other media reports.
