EU 'advancing' in Google dominance probe - Vestager

Tuesday 5 April 2016 | 11:35 CET | News
The European Union is "advancing" in its probes into the dominance of its advertising service and Android operating system for mobile devices, according to EC Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Vestager said the EU's investigation into Google's conduct with its Android mobile OS remains a high priority, but she didn't know when the probe would be completed. She said the commission is looking at "questions about tying – where if you want the Android system, then it comes with a Google suite" of apps.
