Google will be making a number of changes to the Google Store, Google Play Store, Google Flight, Google Hotels and more to make things clearer for people in Europe.
The changes were announced by the European Commission who revealed that Google will make these changes to comply with EU laws.
Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders said: “Even today, almost three years after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown, we see an increasing number of consumers taking to the Internet to book their holidays, make purchases or consult a review. EU consumers are entitled to Get clear, complete information so they can make informed decisions. The commitments made by Google are a step forward in this direction. We call on Google to fully comply with the geo-blocking regulation, ensuring that consumers can enjoy the same rights and access the same content, wherever they are in European Union”.
After the dialogue, Google committed to limiting its ability to make unilateral changes to orders when it comes to price or cancellation, and creating an email address whose use is reserved for consumer protection authorities, so they can report and promptly request removal of illegal content.
