As for the EC fine, the European Commission charged Google $5.07 billion for breaching EU antitrust rules by imposing restrictions on Android device makers and network operators "to cement its dominant position in general internet search".
Which brings us, of course, to Google. YouTube, a Google-owned streaming service, has increased spending on video content to keep consumers from shifting to offerings from Netflix Inc and expanding media conglomerates such as AT&T Inc. During the three month period, Alphabetrecorded total revenues of $32.7 billion.
"There was never a question about Google's dominance of a buoyant digital ads market", said analyst Richard Kramer of Arete Research.

Google's Other revenues -which now includes the smart thermostat business Nest - were $4.23 billion. According to Commissioner Vestager, Google had sent its letter about a year too late. Without the approx $5 billion European Union fine, Alphabet would have reported earnings of $11.75 a share. The largest Ad Revenue-based 'Net business has now averaged 23% growth for 34 (count 'em) straight quarters & shows no signs of slowing.
"Google reported a high-quality quarter in which the bulk of the top line outperformance vs. CS came from Websites (ongoing strength in mobile search, YouTube, as well as desktop search) followed by Network revenue (AdMob and programmatic)", the analyst Stephen Ju said.
Similarly, analysts don't expect European Union antitrust probes to force changes that significantly dent Google earnings. That was a little hire than the Thomson Reuters consensus estimate of $32.17 billion. Some analysts excluded other items as well, and Alphabet also beat that consensus of $9.59. The "Other Bets" segment of various startup and moonshot endeavors had higher revenue this quarter, $145 million, but grew its operating loss to $732 million at the same time.
