Google Assistant is in the sights of the European Commission in the case of creating a trust. According to the Commission, the fact that Google Assistant is pre-installed on smartphones can cause problems.
Whether there is unfair competition from the Google Assistant found in the Android smartphone software remains to be seen at the legal level, but the Commission wants to investigate the matter in relation to third-party digital assistants.
It is true that the field of digital assistants is a competitive element, therefore, the given existence of Google Assistant, as opposed to other proposals of the manufacturers, according to the reasoning of the Commission, can be considered to raise issues of unfair competition.
Should the Commission decide that this is the case, it may impose a fine on Google that could amount to up to 10% of its annual turnover, so we are talking about a very serious case for the European Commission.
