Android user chucks potential $10 billion lawsuit at Google

Google “abuses Android OS to obtain a competitive advantage”, according to a lawsuit filed this week alleging that the Alphabet offshoot “secretively monitored and collected users’ sensitive personal data” to develop apps to compete with TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram.

The putative class-action suit also alleged that Google was gathering info from TikTok specifically in order to unfairly compete against TikTok with a competing video platform app called ‘Shorts’.
