There is currently a huge, worldwide problem, affecting ALL HUAWEI devices powered by Android 7.0 and 8.0, after a Google Play Services update pushed by the end of April. One immediate noticeable effect is that Maps and any app that uses them are not working (e.g. Uber, Lyft, TripAdvisor, Booking.com, etc..). But problems go much, much, deeper like battery drain and devices heating up. On my case (as App developer, not HUAWEI phone owner), apps are crashing when interstitial ads are requested or when the user tries to do an in-app purchase. Other apps like Just Eat are crashing when they user tries to use Google Pay. More information on the issue tracker thread below, which was closed by moderators, asking for developers to "star" it, if they want it solved. IF? Really? Not like that will save developers from 1 star reviews we have no bearing on! https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/79405933#comment171 This is a disaster of epic proportions, but somehow none of the media outlets like GSMArena and PhoneArea are saying a peep about it. Paid much? Putting my tinfoil hat on, I wonder if this was deliberate action in collaboration with the USA government?
