Google Has Until October 31 To Reply To EU's Android Antitrust Charges

Google has been given another extension in the Android antitrust case brought against it by the European Union. This is the fourth extension the company has been given since July. The new deadline is October 31st.

The Commission in April said the U.S. technology giant's demand that mobile phone makers pre-install Google Search and the Google Chrome browser on their smartphones to access other Google apps harms consumers and competition. The EU watchdog had initially set a July 27 deadline for Google to respond to the charges. This had been extended three times at the company's request, with the previous deadline Sept. 20. The new deadlines are Oct. 31 for the Android case and Oct. 26 and Oct. 13 for cases relating to online search advertising and shopping.
