The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing
Yandex has asked the EU to investigate Google for abusing its market position with its Android operating system.
Yandex had previously complained to the Russian anti-monopoly regulator, who last month found Google guilty of “abusing its dominant market position” in the Russian mobile market and ordered the company to unbundle its search app from its Android operating system.
Google is set as the default search engine on all Android phones, and handset manufacturers are unable to preinstall alternative search providers.
If the EU agrees to investigate Google, it will be the latest development in the long-running Google EU saga, as the search giant is currently being investigated by the European Commission under anti-trust charges.
