That was one of the main reasons google pulled out of China.

You may disagree with their stance but it's their policy for their citizens.
This is different to internet access restriction.

Google is f*ing insane ...
For me personally, given the choice I would choose Google search everytime. They are the best at it. So I don't understand why they refused to comply!
This is Google taking the ball home when other kids are mean to them.
AbstractCure, 16 Dec 2019Any country or corporation, even an individual, is welcome to create their very own mobile OS.... moreGoogle did not create Android they just bought the company that did, also its open-source software anyone can use it! The issue is how Google is forcing everyone to follow their BS to make apps work, wanna use a banking app? Nope cannot without Google services, wana play this game? No you need google services to handle the account... (a few offer facebook or twitter options but to be fair all should have alternate options)
Google can afford to pressurise a small country because there is no alternative OS to Android. And ios is for the creamy layer. Google cannot do the same with China or Russia or India because of large userbase. In fact the govts are ruthless in kicking out such companies if needed.
Turkish authority: Google, you should at least allow users to change the default search engine on their phones.
Google: We just cast a spell that turns all future phones arriving this country a Huawei phone on you guys, enjoy!
[deleted post]you could say that because you didnt realized it yet. Both are bad, but the main question is which one is worse?

Every mobile apps or OS, they are all collecting data and spying on you one way or another. But for me I rather being spied by google than by communists China. If the communist found out you do something wrong against them politically then bye bye. You can't even make fun of Xi Jinping, here I surely can make fun of Trump publicly hahaaa take your choice.
Yes, Any country should not bend over to a corporation. Now, join HMS coalition and make it GROWS.
Becarefull Google, IF other non us-lapdogs countries think (and migrating to HMS) this as a chance to reduces you and USA influence / data mining, this maybe will be the beginning of your downfalls
