Google charges mobile manufacturers
Oct 18, 2018
After Google was fined for $5 billion for abusing the dominance of its search software platform against other internet search competitors, Google has reworked a solution, and it will distribute their mobile apps in Europe in a different way. The company will now charge for a licensing fee for free device developers in Google Play; this comes in response to regulators that issued the multi-million fine. The distribution plan will not affect its market back in the U.S. as their shares went around the 2.9 percent mark. Officials at Google stated that they would be working closely with their Android partners as well.
