The European Commission officially filed an antitrust complaint against Google on Wednesday. The company is charged for abusing Android’s dominant position in the smartphone market to strengthen its position in other areas such as web search, browsing and mobile apps.
Google allegedly breached EU antitrust rules by requiring device manufacturers to pre-install Google Search and the company’s Chrome browser as a condition to license certain Google proprietary apps and by offering financial incentives to manufacturers who exclusively pre-install Google Search on their devices.
The below chart illustrates how dominantly Google operates in different areas across the European Union’s largest markets.
This chart shows Google's search engine, smartphone OS and browser market share in the UK, Spain, Italy, France and Germany.
