The idea is that Google services will be more prominent.
Samsung is the smartphone manufacturer with the highest number of sales, a position that benefits not only the company but also the entire Android ecosystem. Despite this, Google does not appear to be satisfied and, according to Bloomberg, is currently negotiating with South Korean technology to gain greater prominence in the brand’s smartphones.
Google’s goal is for Samsung to make the Play Store virtual store more prominent, increasing the visibility of Google’s services in the process. In addition, Google also wants to convince the company to ‘adopt’ the Assistant Digital Assistant at the expense of Samsung’s own, Bixby.
“Like Android device manufacturers, Samsung is free to create its own online store and digital assistant. It is one of the great advantages of the Android platform. And although we regularly speak to our partners on ways to improve the user experience, we have no plans to change that, ”read a statement from a Google spokesman shared by The Verge.
