Huawei /Honor phones Google Play Store block

Posted 31st Oct
Hi

I'm looking to get a new Huawei phone but recall reading that they were blocked from using the google play store due to the US trade blocks.

Does anybody know what the current status of this is? Do the current phones on the market have access to the Google Play store out of the box?

Thanks

Normal access at the moment. Likely to stay they way but possibly future releases might suffer.
Anything under p30 pro are fine. Anything new, not sure.
Thanks all. That's good news.
Don't bother look elsewhere too many uncertainties surrounding the brand.

Ignore this comment if anything all the scare mongering has given us some amazing prices.
Anything from the mate 20 series can be purchased for a bargain right now.
They (Huawei) are developing their own OS and appstore. It's a big business, a big company and they are being cut out of 1/3rd of the world market. They aren't going to be hanging around. There's always sideloading.
As said, only new devices don't currently have access to Google Services. Use the negative press to bag yourself a great phone as a knock down price...
