Microsoft makes complaint against Google
Technology giant Microsoft has accused rival Google of pushing Android services to YouTube and Maps.
Oracle, Nokia and 14 other tech companies have also filed a complaint with the European Commission.
The collective companies, known as FairSearch, have argued that Google is abusing its dominance of the mobile market. In response to the complaint Google said: “We continue to work co-operatively with the European Commission.”
The complaint describes Google’s operating system Android, as a ‘Trojan horse’, offered to device makers for free. In return device makers are “required to pre-load an entire suite of Google mobile services and to give them prominent default placement on the phone,” according to the complaint.
