For the second time in two years, the European commission has fined Google for anti-trust violations. This time Google has been ordered to incur a record fine of 4.34 billion euros ($5.1 billion) for using Android OS on smartphones to allegedly strengthen dominance of its search engine and apps like Google Chrome, resulting in increasing revenue for the company through ads. Google CEO Sundar Pichai has said the company intends to appeal EU's fine. The latest fine adds to the $2.7 billion penalty that the EU antitrust investigators slapped on Google in 2017 for violations pertaining to its treatment of comparison shopping services. Let’s see what the case is all about and what Google has to say about the whole issue.
