Why Android's success in European Union cost Google $5.1b

Sundar Pichai the Chief Executive of the company, has his thoughts in favor of the people and the world they are living in, with the new addition of Artificial Intelligence service that will widen its reach to all the customers and address the underlying issues swiftly with the latest technology integration.

Google is going to replace Android's new operating system OS Fuchsia.

Pichai also added that Google would be appealing against the European Union decision.

Margrethe Vestager, the woman behind the fine, argued that she was in no way targeting American companies for political reasons. The 4.34 billion euro ($5 billion) fine is almost double the previous penalty that the company was ordered to pay a year ago, but it represents a little more than two weeks of revenue for its parent company, Alphabet Inc.

Trump's case on Google apparently started after British protestors pushed Green Day's hit song "American Idiot" to the top of United Kingdom charts during the week of Trump's visit. Its parent company, Alphabet, made $9.4 billion in profit in the first three months of the year and reportedly had over $100 billion in cash reserves.

If you look up ' Completely Wrong' you are also likely to be bombarded by images of former US Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney. "The important thing is not to be distracted by the size of the fine". When users type the word "idiot" in their search term on the engine. While Android's roughly 85 percent market share crushes Apple's 15 percent, the Apple operating system has a leg up in areas like performance, privacy and security, and integration across Apple devices.

The EU wants to ensure that phone makers are free to pre-install apps of their choosing. However, Fuchsia is more than just an experiment at this point - Google's developers have been posting Fuchsia code since 2016, and some enthusiast users have also installed the early versions of the new OS on devices like the Pixelbook.

Before Google shook up the market with Android, gadget makers paid to license operating systems or relied on their own. Its main rival in mobile systems, Apple, makes most of its money from the sale of devices.

The goal to fully replace Android within five years is ambitious, as the OS now powers more than 75% of the world's smartphones, compared to Apple's 15%. "They might be able to regain some power that they've ceded to device manufacturers and telecom carriers".

However, Pichai warned that its Android business model could now change due to the European Union ruling.
