Mountain View, CA – As tech companies continue to grow in size, Google is alleged to give its online video service, YouTube, an advantage over its competitors. They include Facebook Watch, Amazon’s Twitch service, and Vivendi SA’s Dailymotion. According to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) which was informed by people “familiar with the matter,” Google engineers changed their search interface so YouTube’s content is preferred in Google searches.
