Facebook confirmed it had suspended Huawei's ability to pre-install its apps and said it was "reviewing the U.S. commerce department's final rule and the more recently issued temporary general licence and taking steps to ensure compliance".
Huawei smartphones will no longer be able to ship with WhatsApp, Instagram, or Facebook pre-installed, the company told Reuters.
In France, sales of premium Huawei smartphones fell by about one-fifth in the week after the USA blacklisted the company, according to a telecom industry representative who asked not to be identified as the figures are private.
This time, it's social networking giant Facebook, which is no longer allowing the pre-installation of its apps on the beleaguered Chinese firm's phones.
As reported by the publication, Google apps and services will be available for current Huawei phones, "including those which have not yet shipped or even been built", but when it comes to Facebook, the trade ban has been interpreted in a different way and applies to "any Huawei phone that has not yet left the factory".
These changes to Huawei's deals with US companies come as a result of the company being placed on the US Entity List, which bans companies from conducting business with Huawei without express permission from the government.
Fret not Facebook users, the Facebook-owed applications can still be downloaded through the Google Play store and receive updates, until the end of the 90-day grace period Google has given. Soon afterwards, Google cut Huawei off from future Android updates, before temporarily resuming work.
Huawei isn't giving up without a fight, challenging the ban in U.S. courts.
It's been less than three weeks since President Donald Trump restricted the Chinese tech giant's access to Google's Android operating system, and already, Huawei's smartphone business appears to be losing ground in Europe, a critical growth market.
