The timing of Microsoft’s sudden interest here is no coincidence. Read more here: blog.google/products/news/…
But let's discuss the issue, not be derailed by naked corporate opportunism. As Microsoft faces increased competition from us and others, it’s reverting to its familiar playbook of attacking rivals and lobbying for regulations that benefit its own interests.

Dreamers are critical to the US & it's urgent that Congress work to protect their status. Many face significant economic hardships due to the pandemic. @Googleorg is working with @UNITEDWEDREAM to cover the DACA application fees of over 500 Dreamers. blog.google/outreach-initi…

#Smallbiz are hurting, and instead of helping them, these Attorneys General are trying to force middlemen between small businesses and their customers." Read @Jacobmward's full statement on the lawsuit against @Google and why he’s calling it “nuts”: connectedcouncil.org/3c-president-s…

We know scrutiny of big companies is important & we’re prepared to answer questions & work through issues. But this lawsuit would deprive Americans of helpful information & hurt businesses’ ability to connect directly with customers. We look forward to making that case in court.
These types of direct results drive billions of direct connections to businesses. This lawsuit would force us to feature middlemen and aggregators instead. That’s bad for you, bad for businesses.
It’s clear that other search engines get the same feedback because they also feature these types of direct results.
And this is what they look like today—more useful information, more direct connections to businesses, more links to websites. Our rigorous testing tells us that you far prefer these types of rich results.
Look how our search results have improved over the years. This is what our search results looked like in 2000—10 blue links.
If you don’t like our results, you have numerous alternatives like Amazon, Expedia, TripAdvisor & many others. So we keep working to improve our results, designing & rolling out helpful features like maps, flight options, product listings & information about local businesses.
Redesigning Google Search would harm American consumers and businesses. Read our full response to state AGs’ lawsuit. blog.google/outreach-initi…

We applaud the @FCC for releasing its draft NPRM earlier on Equipment Marketing and Importation, and look forward to next month's vote fcc.gov/document/allow… twitter.com/googlepubpolic…
5G has the potential to drive the next generation of technology and it will provide a great deal of benefits for consumers. We thank the @FCC for acting to remove obstacles that slow down delivery of 5G, Wi-Fi, and other important technologies to Americans.
Emerging markets face a watershed moment. Our new “Digital Sprinters” report shows how countries are using digital tools to not just recover from the pandemic, but develop, transform, and grow their economies. blog.google/outreach-initi…

Net net, Americans don’t use Google because they have to -- they use it because they choose to.
It’s equally as easy to switch your search engine on Chrome.
Plus, it’s super easy to download rival search engines on Android.
And carriers and device makers are free to preload numerous competing apps and app stores.
Android has spurred incredible competition in mobile phones. Our promotional agreements with carriers and device makers to feature Google Search directly reduce the price that people pay for phones.
On Windows devices, Google is nowhere to be found: Microsoft preloads its Edge browser onto Windows devices and Bing is the default search engine.
But this is not exclusive: Bing and Yahoo! also pay Apple to feature prominently. And it’s easy to change your search engine.
Just like a cereal brand might pay a supermarket to stock its products on a shelf at eye level, we pay to promote our services, as do countless other businesses. Apple features Google Search on their devices because they say Google is the best. fastcompany.com/90269911/apple…
Today, you can easily choose your own search engine or download an app in a matter of seconds. The DOJ is wrongly claiming Americans aren’t sophisticated enough to do this.
This isn’t the dial-up 1990s when you needed to purchase a CD-ROM from a store to access alternative services or wait forever for a 28.8 kbps modem. youtube.com/watch?v=gsNaR6…
The DOJ’s deeply flawed lawsuit would do nothing to help consumers. It could actually raise phone prices, make it harder for people to access the services they want, and artificially prop up lower quality search services. Read our blog post→blog.google/outreach-initi…
Today’s lawsuit by the Department of Justice is deeply flawed. People use Google because they choose to -- not because they're forced to or because they can't find alternatives. We will have a full statement this morning.
The service that veterans provide doesn’t end when they trade in the uniform for civilian clothes. We’re launching Serving Veterans to use Google’s technology and reach to help vets find resources that are authoritative, useful, and relevant. servingveterans.withgoogle.com
