Alphabet Shares Fall on Reports of Samsung Replacing Google Search with Bing

Alphabet shares fell as much as 4% on Monday following a report South Korea’s Samsung Electronics was considering replacing Google with Microsoft-owned Bing as the default search engine on its devices. After this report, Alphabet lost nearly $57 billion in market value. A report by the New York Times underscores the growing challenges Google’s $162-billion-a-year search engine business face from Bing. Bing gains huge popularity recently after the integration of the artificial intelligence tech behind ChatGPT.

Google’s reaction to the threat was “panic” as the company earns an estimated $3 billion in annual revenue from the Samsung contract. Google is also going to renew the $20 billion deal with Apple which is also in danger. Google has for decades dominated the search market with a share of over 80%. But now, Microsoft is in a fast-moving AI race.
