Hi, what are you looking for?

Attend Our Briefing: Impact of Google’s changes to Android and Play Store

Third-party billing systems like Razorpay in apps, the ability for users to choose Bing over Google as their default search engine on an Android smartphone, and more flexibility for smartphone manufacturers like Xioami in choosing what Google apps they want on their phones are some of the major changes that Google has agreed to make to Android and Play Store to comply with the Competition Commission of India’s (CCI) antitrust orders. 

In this MediaNama Briefing, we will dive into these changes and its impact on consumers, developers, and smartphone manufacturers.
