Google, like Samsung or Apple, is a company that does not get rid of the controversy, and in most cases, it is precisely because it has done something wrong. We complain a lot about Facebook, but really, the company that knows most about us is Google.

And now, the US firm could face multi-million dollar fines imposed by the European Commission, and, on this occasion, the thing has to do with Android.
We have been awaiting for some years the processes – which sometimes seem endless – that they affect the large companies in the mobile technology sector, such as Samsung or Apple. However, the service providers in the network also have their problems with justice.
And Google is now pending a resolution of the European Commission, which could fine you with up to 11,000 million dollars, which, as we read in it accounts for 10% of the global turnover of Alphabet, the parent company of Google.
And this fine would come due to a monopoly situation that has to do with Android. And it is that, is investigating the fact that, despite being Android open source, Google could have forced telephone manufacturers to integrate their applications and services, such as Google Chrome or Google Search. Which, personally, I do not doubt that the company does. More than once we have complained about the Google bloatware that exists in virtually all terminals.
For now we will have to wait for the resolution of the fine to know whether or not Google is guilty or not, but the truth is that, if it is, it would be added to the other fines that the company has had to assume. And it may seem like a bad thing for the company, but the truth is that breaking the law has its consequences, and it’s great that big companies are aware of it.
