Google has failed to convince Europe’s General Court to overturn the Commission’s ruling on its Android antitrust case and its decision to slap the company with a €4.3/US$4.3 billion fine. The General Court upheld the Commission’s original ruling back in 2018 that Google used its dominant position in the market to impose restrictions on manufacturers that make Android phones and tablets. It did, however, reduce the fine a bit, deciding that €4.125/US$4.125 billion is the more appropriate amount based on its findings.
The Commission previously found that Google acted illegally by making it mandatory for Android manufacturers to pre-install its apps and its search engine.
