Google to charge mobile companies in EU for using Google Pl…


In July 2018, the EU had made new rules about making Google apps a default browser pre-installed in the Android smartphones.

As reported and published in the WashingtonPost in July, there were reports and complaints about Google forcing these Android companies to preinstall their apps in the smartphones.

So finally ending all the rivals and fights over who gets what.., Google has finally come up with a decision and also a settlement where they are going to charge the android companies making smartphones in the EU for using google apps.

Any access would not be available for the android companies until and unless they made a legal license with the google company directly.

The company would be discontinued if found using any scams or illegal google items over the Internet, and also the security settings have been made very strict by Google.

In a blog post, Hiroshi Lockheimer–Senior VicePresident of platforms and ecosystem, wrote: “The device manufacturers would be able to have a license for the Google mobile application suite separately directly from the Google Search App or the Chrome browser.

Since the pre-installation of Google Search and Chrome together with our other apps helped us fund the development and free distribution of Android, we will introduce a new paid licensing agreement for smartphones and tablets shipped into the EEA. Android will remain free and open source. Weare offering separate licenses to the Google Search app and to Chrome.

We’ll also offer new commercial agreements to partners for the non-exclusive pre-installation and placement of Google Search and Chrome.

Completion of the apps may be pre-installed alongside ours. These new licensing options will come into effect on October 29, 2018, for all new smartphones and tablets launched in the EEA.”

Ending the riots, Google is as pleased as any company would be with the increase in the number of their stakes with this number of fortune coming in.
