EU regulators re about to deliver the findings on their investigation into Google’s Android OS, the regulators are expected to fine Google and also ask for major changes to the OS.
Google are expected to be fined for making Android manufacturers use their search and Chrome browser on Android devices, whilst these are not mandatory, if you want to install some apps you have to install a certain suite of apps.
The regulators could force Google to allow Android makers to use Google’s Android OS without any restrictions on what software and apps are installed on their devices. The fine is expected to be a big one and could be over a billion dollars.
The EU regulators announced their investigation into Android back in 2016, they have spent the last two years looking into it.
