Users who choose a search app will also be asked if they want to change the default search engine in the phone's Chrome browser. The move comes as Google is "addressing European Union antitrust concerns and staving off fresh sanctions", the report says. The new screens will be displayed to users when they open Google Play for the first time after receiving an upcoming update.
Google has introduced its new Search App and Browser selection options for Android users in Europe.
Google has announced plans of presenting new screens to Android users in Europe, giving them an option to download search apps and browsers of their choice. Researchers reportedly found that this app had code that not just clicked on ads to generate revenue without the user's consent, but could do so without the app running.
Each contains five of the most popular applications in their field, showcased in a random order with a shortcut to install them to the right-hand side. This should make Android compliant with the European Commission's ruling, but Google also points out that it "will be evolving the implementation over time".
Google will be hoping that the move will stave off further interest from the European Commission, but it's not clear whether it will be enough to keep regulators happy.
Typically, Android gizmos ship with Chrome bundled and Google as the default search engine, which European watchdogs reckon is an abuse of its dominant position in the online world.
If any additional search or browser app is installed, more instructions screens will follow to help the user set up the new app. The EU held that Google "imposed illegal restrictions on Android device manufacturers and mobile network operators to cement its dominant position in general internet search".
"To better protect sensitive user data available through these permissions, we restricted access to select use cases, such as when an app has been chosen by the user to be their default text message app", Samat explained. On the other hand, Google stated that these allegations are not true and OEMs are allowed to either use all the apps in the Google Suite or install few of them which of course has a different payment package.
