Google might be required to sell some of its most popular sides of the business, as well as Google Chrome, based on plans that have been made by the US government.
At the moment, the US Justice Department (DOJ) officials are gathering an antitrust case along with state prosecutors regarding Google’s supposed monopoly over various online markets, stating that the tech giant has too much strength.
These government plans might force Google to spin off or sell sections of its advertising business, or even possibly its Chrome browser.
For quite some time now, Google has been accused of market dominance in America, with both government and state regulators leering at the company with Amazon and Facebook as well.
The company was mainly attacked for supposedly dominating the online search market, which their competition believes has held up due to unfair support through its advertising business and software offering like Chrome and the Android mobile operating system.
A lawsuit is being prepped by the Department of Justice against Google, along with the advice to sell off or split up the company, which shows the seriousness of it.
