New Huawei phones will ship without Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp

Facebook won’t allow Huawei to pre-install Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp on Huawei anymore

Huawei phone owners will still be able to download and use WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook’s apps itself, and they’ll continue to receive updates through the Play store. Huawei just won’t be able to include them with phones.

Google has secured a temporary license to continue to send security updates to existing Huawei phones. Huawei phones currently in stores or “those which have not yet shipped or even been built” will still have the Google services pre-installed.
