Italy’s competition watchdog said on Friday it had opened an investigation into alleged abuse of a dominant market position by Google in the smart device sector.

The watchdog said in a statement Google had allegedly refused to integrate the app “Enel X Recharge”, developed by utility Enel, in its Android Auto app.

Enel’s app allows drivers of electric cars to find charging points for their vehicles and book them.

“We are reviewing the complaint and look forward to working with the authority to resolve their concerns,” the spokeswoman said.

Enel declined to comment.

The investigation is due to be completed by May 30 next year.
