A Chinese man is silhouetted near the Huawei logo in Beijing on Thursday. The Trump administration issued an executive order Wednesday apparently aimed at banning Huawei equipment from U.S. networks.

Google says it will stop offering Android updates for phones made by the Chinese telecom company Huawei. The move follows a U.S. executive order that American companies stop doing business with any foreign company that harms national security interests.

Google, owned by Alphabet, "has suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware, software and technical services except those publicly available via open source licensing," Reuters first reported. In a statement, Google confirmed the news: "We are complying with the order and reviewing the implications," a spokesperson said, according to CNBC.

In practice, this means Huawei won't be able to license Google's Android operating system, so Huawei phone users will lose access to updates.
