Tech giant Google on Friday said the company is looking forward to working with India’s anti-trust regulator the Competition Commission of India (CCI) on issues related to the Android mobile operating system.

Reacting to a Reuters story that the CCI has ordered a probe into Google for alleged abuse of its popular Android OS to block rivals, the company said it is ready to allay any such fears.

“Android has enabled millions of Indians to connect to the Internet by making mobile devices more affordable,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement shared with IANS.

“We look forward to working with the Competition Commission of India to demonstrate how Android has led to more competition and innovation, not less,” the spokesperson added.

Google last year filed an appeal with the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) against a judgment by the fair trade regulator that fined the tech giant Rs 136.86 crore in February for abuse of its dominance and biased search practices in India.

The CCI verdict in February came in response to complaints filed by Matrimony.com and Consumer Unity and Trust Society (CUTS), a consumer organisation, in 2012.

The competition watchdog said the penalty was being imposed on Google for “infringing anti-trust conduct”.

Google has finally added the feature on Gmail to send email as attachments without needing to download them first.

“We’ve heard from you that there are situations where attaching emails makes more sense than forwarding separate emails, like wanting to forward multiple messages related to a single topic. With this new functionality, you can do exactly that. Sending emails as attachments allows you to write a summary email message to your recipients, and attach the set of supporting emails that recipients can directly open in their mail client,” said Google in a blog post,” the company added,” the company said in a statement on Monday.

As soon as the feature arrives, a new “Forward as attachment” option in the three-dot menu will appear.

Users can either use the attach button when drafting a new email or can select multiple emails, and find the option of “Forward as attachment” in the three-dot menu.

Additionally, there is no need to create a brand new thread for replying to an email, as well. Just pop out the draft window when replying to someone, then drag and drop emails to it like a user would do while creating a new draft entirely.

The feature will be rolling out to all G suite editions gradually within the next month.
