Google announced: Turkey's new Android phone will not be able to use Google GMS

[gearbest News] after the Turkish Competition Commission ruled that Google's amendment to its contract was unacceptable, Google told its Turkish business partners that it would not be able to work with them on new Android phones to be released in Turkey, according to other media reports.


Earlier, the Turkish commission launched an investigation into Google after a document was submitted by Yandex, a Russian rival, and then ordered Google to revise all software distribution agreements to allow consumers to choose different search engines in its Android mobile operating system. In September 2018, the Turkish Competition Commission fined Google 93 million lira ($17.4 million) for selling mobile software in violation of competition law. At the time, the committee ordered Google to carry out reforms within six months to restore competition.


On November 7, the Turkish committee ruled that the changes Google made to rival partners' contracts at the request of the committee were not enough because Google was still not allowed to change its default search engine. "We have informed our business partners that we will not be able to work with them to develop new Android phones for the Turkish market," Google said in a statement. "consumers will be able to purchase existing device models and be able to use their devices and applications normally," the statement said. Other Google services will not be affected. "

The Turkish Competition Commission said it had fined Google 0.05 per cent of its daily revenue for the violation, which would remain in effect until Google met all its requirements. Google can challenge the ruling within 60 days.
