With both the foldable Mate X device and Mate 30 series slated for release later this year, they simply won't sell if they'll be inconvenient to use from an app perspective and potentially open users up to security vulnerabilities without sanctioned Android updates.
The issue has been going on for more than a year now, probably even before that as Huawei has not really captured the United States market.
Huawei's devices in its home market do not have Google apps, but the move could hugely damage the brand's appeal to consumers outside China.
The next version of its Android smartphones will also lose access to popular services including the Google Play Store and Gmail and YouTube apps.
US President Donald Trump has signed an order banning Chinese firms from using US technology without government permission. Crucially, that might mean Huawei no longer gets access to Google Maps, YouTube, Gmail, Google Assistant and Google Play.

Phase 7: 59 Lok Sabha seats go to polls in 8 states
Pollsters say Modi remains personally popular but his party's overall majority is at risk from a backlash against the government. Mr Modi's main rival is Rahul Gandhi, 48, of the Congress party, the scion of India's famed Nehru-Gandhi dynasty.
But, assuming the ban holds, it does mean Huawei will from now on be blocked from offering Android users the app store and Google services majority take for granted.
Without the license to use Android, Huawei will now only be allowed to use the Android Open Source Project, which means the company will not have access to Google apps and services on their Android devices.
USA internet giant Google, whose Android mobile operating system powers most of the world's smartphones, said Sunday it was beginning to cut ties with China's Huawei, which Washington considers a national security threat. "We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally", the company said in a statement to the media.
The company has reportedly been preparing for a potential supply freeze since the middle of 2018, while designing its own chips to go into phones, laptops, and networking products. Huawei is yet to respond to the suspension and Google's global statement doesn't provide much detail or specifics. Huawei was said to be in the process of developing its own operating system as a contingency plan in the event that it lost access to Android.
The biggest losers are, needless to say, Huawei and Honor phone owners, current and prospective, as well as Google, whose reputation as an honest referee of the Android ecosystem may never recover, forcing half of the world to look for alternatives.
