Pichai admits Google pays Apple a 36 percent revenue share for search results.

Google’s CEO is not trying to deny or steer that it shares 36 percent of mobile search revenue with Apple in exchange for iPhone default search and pays as much as $18 billion for it in total a year.

Epic did not get Pichai to admit that it pays Samsung half as much for search defaults at 16 percent. Pichai says that for Samsung phones, Google pays the carrier, too.
