EU: Google CEO “The right outcomes will emerge on European antitrust”

 |  June 2, 2016

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said he believes that European anti-competitive charges relating to the company’s Android smartphone operating system will be resolved.

“I feel like the right outcomes will emerge,” said Pichai on stage at the Code Conference on Wednesday in answer to an audience question from a concerned investor.

Alphabet’s Google is facing an monopoly lawsuit brought by the European officials, related to the company’s dominant position in search.

“We are very popular, users use us a lot,” said Pichai.

Google has a team dedicated to this very issue, but it is not something that consumes the company, said Pichai.

“We don’t want the whole management team at the company to think about it,” he said.

The Commission has said it believes Google had broken the law in a number of ways and held a press conference on the issue in April.
