• Amidst the ongoing price war between China and the US, the Chinese government may ask other Chinese companies Xiaomi, OnePlus, Vivo, Oppo to use Harmony OS. In such a situation, Google's big market can be snatched.

• China may also block its app developers from making apps for the Android operating system. In such a situation, Android users will not get many apps, after which users can switch to Harmony OS.

• Huawei can also become a big competitor for Google in Europe. Huawei has a good userbase in the European market. Apart from this, Huawei's smartphones are also sold a lot in South Asian countries.

• If the US extends the ban on Huawei, then China can also ban other American companies including Google. In such a situation, Google's Android operating system can suffer huge losses.

• Huawei itself is a large technology company that develops products like chipsets, telecom equipment along with software.

• If Huawei users use HarmonyOS, then Google may have to make its Google Suite service available to users in the future.
