A few weeks ago there were rumors that Samsung planned to abandon Google as the default browser in its smartphones in favor of Bing, which gains a lot thanks to artificial intelligence. Now, however, he has changed his mind.
Google can feel safe
Not everyone probably knows that Google pays large sums to Apple and Samsung for the fact that their flagship product, i.e. the search engine, is the default in the basic browsers on these smartphones. In the case of Koreans, we are talking about a trifle amount of USD 3 billion per year, which is huge for any company. Therefore, many analysts were surprised that Samsung intends to resign from the contract with Google and instead start cooperation with Microsoft, which has its own Bing search engine. The latter has recently been gaining users mainly thanks to artificial intelligence functions and integration with Chat GPT. Samsung at first wanted to ride this wave, but after a long thought gave it up.
Of course, we are still operating in the field of rumors, because there was no official information on this subject. According to information published yesterday by The Wall Street Journal, Samsung was a bit scared of its move and gave up switching to Bing. It was not only about the previously mentioned USD 3 billion, but also the impact this move may have on cooperation with Google in the future. It must not be forgotten that the Mountain View giant is responsible for Android, the system used by Samsung. It seems that the Koreans do not want to jeopardize the existing, good cooperation. Especially since they also started using the Google system on their watches.
Finally, Samsung seems to have realized that hardly anyone uses its built-in browser anyway. Most users reach for Chrome anyway, if only because of the ability to synchronize passwords with the version for personal computers. Google, on the other hand, can breathe easy and focus on introducing artificial intelligence to its search engine, which was already announced during Google I/O.
