The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has now made new rules for the American company Google in India. According to these new rules, many new changes will be seen in Google’s Android OS. With these new rules, many problems of the users will also be removed and they will get a better experience than before.
Just last week, the Indian Supreme Court refused to stay the Competition Commission of India’s (CCI) order imposing a hefty fine of Rs 1,337.76 crore on Google for taking advantage of the dominant position of its Android operating system.
After the decision of the Competition Commission of India, Google will now make many important changes in its platforms and business in India. After this new change, OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) will also be able to license personalized Google apps for pre-installation on their new upcoming devices.
Before this, whenever you used to buy a new android smartphone, many Google apps like Google Maps, YouTube etc. were pre-installed in it and users could not even delete these apps from their phones. But now after the new rule, smartphone mobile companies will either sell these apps of Google without installing them in the smartphone or if Google gives any preloaded apps, then users will be able to delete them as well.
Before this, only Google used to be the default search engine in the smartphone. Now after this rule, users will also be allowed to choose their default search engine on android smartphones. Apart from this, apart from Google, users can also choose Microsoft Bing, Yahoo and other search engines as per their choice.
Under this new rule, Google will now also allow users to choose an alternative billing system while purchasing an app from the Play Store. And app developers can now also offer their own payment system as per their convenience for payment. Due to which, after these new rules, they will now have to pay less to the company instead of 30 percent commission. And at the same time we can see a cut in the prices of the apps as well.
