Biggest ever fined by the EU for anticompetitive behavior

Recently, Google has been fined by the EU with a record amount of $5 billion for anticompetitive behavior. Apparently, Google has forced Andriod mobile phone producers to pre-install Google Search and browser apps. EU claimed that this practice restricts competition and reduces choices for consumers. Also, Google has a market share exceeding 90 percent in most European countries. Therefore EU wants to ensure that phone makers are free to pre-install apps of their choosing and allow for competition in services such as internet searches.
