New Technology Giant Faces Legal Battle Over App Store Monopoly

Google, the tech giant, has recently been found guilty of violating antitrust laws in the United States, marking another legal setback for the company. The ruling concluded that Google had an illegal monopoly over app distribution and payments in the Play Store.

The lawsuit, brought forward by Epic Games, accused Google of secretly paying game developers to make their apps exclusively available on the Play Store. It was also alleged that Google had entered into agreements with other gaming companies and device manufacturers to pre-install its apps on Android devices.

This verdict carries significant implications for the gaming industry and raises questions about whether Google will have to revise its business practices. The court is yet to decide whether Google will be required to allow developers to create their own app stores and payment systems on Android devices.

While Google intends to challenge the ruling, emphasizing its strong competition with Apple and other industry rivals, this verdict still marks a substantial step in addressing the monopoly held by this technology giant.
