How Yandex and Google are fighting for the sphere of influence
Yandex submitted an application to the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) with a request to check Google for violations of the antimonopoly legislation of the Russian Federation. This is stated in the message of the company, received by the editors of Medusa.
“Now the European Commission is investigating the situation with the dominance of Google on Android. “Yandex” is already involved in the European process, and today has filed an application with the FAS to verify the violation of the Russian antitrust laws by Google, ”says a message released by Yandex 18 of February.
Yandex believes that the user should have a choice of which services will be installed on their devices by default. “Services for users — such as search, maps, mail, etc. — must be separated from the Android operating system,” the company said. At the same time, “Yandex” reminded that in 2014, Google banned the presetting of all services of this company on Fly, Explay and Prestigio mobile devices. With a high probability, indicated in the "Yandex", Google will continue this practice.
"Google should not prohibit the pre-installation of competitors' applications," said Ochir Mandzhikov, a Yandex representative.
