Google clarified that side loading Google apps will not work reliably because they will not allow its services to run on uncertified devices where security can be compromised. In other words, a notable feat for a newly launched service is already rivaling industry giants, like Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Although the review process isn't due to officially start until August, once it kicks off Google will serve as the first point of security to prevent malicious apps from gaining access to user data on android. "Since the beginning of Android, users have needed to grant explicit permission to any app that wants access to their location data", Google said in its blog post. In it, he clarifies the Mountain View company's position regarding the Huawei ban, which prohibits companies like Google to install its products on Huawei products. This size may seem high, but when we think about 2,000 applications in Quick App, we can clearly say that very small areas are occupied per application. Lack of such popular apps will make it harder for Huawei to convince people to use their phones that lack Google services. In the USA, you are not advised to load sideways, download applications or transfer them to the phone from another device.

Last week in security news, researchers discovered a clicker malware family called "Haken" as well as new samples of the Joker premium dialer and spyware hiding in Google Play.

But it can not certify Huawei's new devices. After Huawei said its operating system is also prepared and now the company has officially Your App Store, also presenting is made.

Existing Huawei devices with Google Mobile Services pre-installed are not affected and this include the Huawei Nova 5T, Y9s, Y9 Prime 2019, P30, P30 Pro, Honor 20, Honor 20 Pro and Honor 9X.

Huawei is pumping billions of dollars for developing its Huawei Mobile Services app catalogue. The APK teardown of the launcher reports some unique features such as increased touch sensitivity options for the Pixel 4 series, suggested apps on the home screen, added Motion Sense gestures for music, new screenshot preview, revamped Notification History page, and many more.

These features are not yet available for users in the latest Pixel Launcher release, and it's possible that Google may never release them. But, if you still own an Essential Phone and were disappointed by the news of the company shutting down and ending its support, then there is big news for you.
