Google Apps: Google has announced several major changes to its Android platform. However, these changes will be for Indian users only. Google is going to make this change after the Supreme Court decision, where the CCI (Competition Commission of India) issued guidelines regarding the impact on the company’s market position and growth of other companies due to the Android system. After the Supreme Court’s directive, now the tech company Google has to make these changes in their Android system. Now you can uninstall Google’s pre-installed apps from your smartphone. Google itself said this through a blog post.
Google has been fined Rs 936.44
Competition Commission of India (CCI) has fined Google. The fine was not in lakhs, but in crores. The total cost of fine was Rs.936.44. Now after the Supreme Court’s decision, Google through its blog post has said that we take India’s local laws and regulations to follow guidelines seriously. Recent Competition Commission of India (CCI) guidelines for Android and Google Play require us to make significant changes to Android in India and we have informed the CCI how we will comply with their guidelines.
These historical changes have occurred
This new change by Google is going to benefit billions of Android users in the country. In very simple words, after this decision by Google, the companies that make Android smartphones will have to get a license to pre-install Google apps on their devices. But till now Google apps like YouTube, Play Store, YouTube Music, Photos, Gmail etc. were pre-installed on all Android devices and users couldn’t even uninstall them. Not only that, Google was the default search engine for Android users. With the new announcement, users can now choose their preferred search engine as the default on their phone.
