Google to charge extra costs for its pre-installed apps

Are you thinking about purchasing a new mobile phone? Do it before the 29 of October. Any later and you’ll have to pay extra if you want to have Google services like YouTube, Gmail, Maps and even the Playstore pre-installed.

Google has recently announced that European manufacturers will have to obtain a paid licensing agreement from Google to sell Android devices with pre-installed Google services. Thus customers will have to spend more money on Google’s Android devices fitted out with Google’s survival package including YouTube, Maps, Gmail, Drive, Playstore, Search Engine and Chrome Browser.

Read here why Google decided to take that step and which opportunities you will have when buying an Android Phone.
