According to MLex and taken up by the Reuters press agency, the European Commission would have launched this investigation into the possible Google monopoly in the field of voice assistants. Specifically, the Commission would be interested in the possible Big G strategies to force OEMs to pre-install Google Assistant and make it the default assistant, potentially forcing exclusivity against smartph manufacturers
