The European Commission gave Google two extra weeks to respond to antitrust charges relating to Android.
Earlier this year, EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager accused the search giant of “stifling competition and innovation” by using the Android platform to sideline app rivals.
The EC previously gave the company an extension from 27 July to 7 September. Now, according to Reuters, this has been put back again.
“On Android, the last deadline set by the Commission for Google’s reply, after an extension request by Google, is 20 September,” a European Commission spokesman said in an email.
The EC is unhappy that Google is the default search engine on Android devices, enabling the company to generate revenue for its core business, while also requiring prominent positions for Google apps, even where alternatives are available.
