The European Commission now wants Google to take along its “illegal conduct to an end in an effective manner within 90 days of the decision.”  Google will have to end companies to preinstall Chrome and Google search to offer the Google play store on handsets. Google will also have to stop preventing phone makers from using forked versions of Android. Google’s illegal payments for app bundling finished in 2014 after the EU started to look into the matter.

Google Faces $5 Billion Fine against European Union Antitrust Laws

The European Commission has been investigating android more carefully over the past year after the rivals complain that Google has been abusing its market dominance in software that runs on smartphones. Fairsearch filed a complaint against Google in 2013 and the group included competitors like Nokia, Microsoft, and Oracle. Many called Google a monopoly, one that authorities should control.

The $5 billion fine overlook Google’s previous $2.7 billion record-breaking fine from the EU last year over deployed search results.  Facebook, Intel, and Microsoft have all faced major anti-competition fines from the European Commission.

With Google pleasing the decision, the legal process is likely to run for many further years. Though many had expected Google to face its own “Microsoft moment,” the EU doesn’t seem to be forcing any strong future mistake on Android or asking Google to modify its software to include an opinion poll for alternative browsers or search engines. Phone manufacturers will quiet be free to bundle Chrome and Google search apps if they wish, but they won’t be forced to do so.
