Google has made and will make a number of changes to address EU antitrust regulatorsâ concerns that it unfairly promoted its shopping service and hindered rivals of its Android smartphone operating system, a senior executive said on Wednesday.
âWeâve always agreed that healthy, thriving markets are in everyoneâs interest. Weâve already made a wide range of changes to our products to address the Commissionâs concerns,â Kent Walker, senior vice-president of global affairs, said in a statement.
âOver the next few months, weâll be making further updates to give more visibility to rivals in Europe,â he continued.
He did not comment specifically on the European Commissionâs 1.49-billion-euro (USD 1.7 billion) fine handed down earlier on Wednesday for blocking rival online advertisers.
