Italy’s antitrust opens abuse of dominant position probe into Google

MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s competition watchdog said on Friday it had opened an investigation into alleged abuse of a dominant market position by Google in the smart device sector.

In a statement the antitrust said Google had allegedly refused to integrate the app “Enel X Recharge”, developed by utility Enel, in its Android Auto app.

Through its Android operating system, Google has a dominant position in the smart device operating system market, the regulator said.

The probe will be wrapped up by May 30 next year.
