Google gets additional time to respond to EU antitrust charges on Android

EU antitrust regulators gave Google Inc. an additional six weeks to respond to antitrustcharges related to its Android mobile operating system, Reuters reported July 12.

The European Commission in April sent Google its statement ofobjections regarding thecompany's Android mobile operating system, which the commission believes stiflescompetition in search and hampers the development of rival Android versions in Europe.The Alphabet Inc.-ownedcompany countered theclaims and insisted its partner agreements are "entirely voluntary" withthe customers free to personalize their Android devices and download any app.

The EU watchdog reportedly extended the deadline for replyingto the charges to Sept. 7 from July 27. If found guilty, Google can reportedly facefines up to $7.4 billion or 10% of its global turnover for each antitrust case.
