Google and Huawei – An update for Forsite app users

Many of you will be aware of the news reports circulating this week confirming that Google has suspended its hardware and software business with Chinese company Huawei. (More information is here.)

Understandably, those in our network who use Android phones may be wondering how this will affect use of the Forsite app. 

At present, this announcement will not affect your use of the Forsite app on Android devices. It will only affect us if Huawei handsets (be they present or new) are banned from the Google Play store or from using Google’s Android OS system. 

Should a ban be applied and enforced in future, Huawei users will not be able to update any new feature releases of the Forsite app from that point onwards, or until such a ban is lifted.

We are keeping a close eye on developments around this and will keep you – our valued Forsite app users – informed if anything changes, and the options should the ban be applied.

In the meantime, if you have any further questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line through our usual channels.
