Intel, Qualcomm join Google in cutting off business with Huawei

Huawei‘s trade ban by the U.S. government has already resulted in Google cutting off the Chinese manufacturer. Now, several tech giants have joined the search company in following the government ban.

Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Xilinx have all told employees that they won’t supply Huawei, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the actions.

Intel and Qualcomm are perhaps the two most prominent companies taking action here. Intel supplies processors for the Chinese brand’s laptops and servers, while Qualcomm supplies chipsets and modems for its budget phones.

The news comes a short while after Reuters reported that Google has suspended business with Huawei. This means the Chinese brand loses access to Android updates as well as Google services, according to the news wire.

Google has since issued a statement via its Android Twitter account, saying that current Huawei devices will still receive access to services like Google Play and Google Play Protect.
