European Google Law Should Not Be Android’s Main Search Engine

TEKNOKU.me – Google will not be the main search engine on Android. In addition to having to pay a fine of USD 5 billion, Google was also asked to provide an alternative search engine for users of the Green Robot OS. This rule applies to the European Union.

Quoted from Gizchina, Google will be asked to bring up four search engine choices starting March 1, 2020. The choices include DuckDuckGo, Yahoo, Bing, and Google.

This rule is the aftermath of the accusation of the European Commission that considers Google to have practiced a monopoly on search engines with a number of aspects highlighted.

One of the points that become a reference is, Google has deliberately made Google Search the default search engine on every cellphone based on the Android operating system.

In addition, as reported by The Guardian, Google is said to have eliminated the right of consumers to choose search engines and provide incentives to smartphone manufacturers and mobile operators so that they make consumers pre-install Google Search as default.

This problem also reaped the pros and cons after a decision which took 39 months to investigate by the business competition authority of the European Union Commission.
