Yahoo was once the number one search engine in the world, but Google gradually ended its reign completely. In such a situation, Microsoft Corp has now offered $ 44.6 billion (about 3.3 lakh crore rupees) to buy Yahoo Inc. On the basis of this deal, these two companies can raise competition for Google. Yahoo said on Friday that its board would evaluate the offer. Its shares have risen nearly 48% to $ 28.33 (about Rs. 2090).
This is not the first time that Microsoft has offered to buy Yahoo. Rather, since 2008, she is constantly trying it. Microsoft has written a letter to the Yahoo board in which it offered $ 31 in cash and stock per share. If this deal happens then people can get many benefits.
Yahoo dominates news, finance and sports
500 million (500 million) people visit Yahoo every month for news, finance and sports. At the same time, it is number one in the consumer email service. Critics say the two companies have multiple overlapping businesses. These include emails and advertisements from instant messaging. There is also a web search market with news, travel and finance sites. However, Google dominates all these places.
Users gain in competition from Google
There is no doubt that Google is a wild king of the Internet world. Google is controlling everything from the Google search engine to the Android operating system of the smartphone. Most people have become completely dependent on Google’s apps and software. This is the reason that Google is now slowly paying many services. Users may have to spend 130 rupees a month just for Google Photos. In such a situation, the command of Yahoo comes in the hands of Microsoft, then it can launch many services to challenge Google.
Right now Yahoo has many services that Microsoft can take advantage of. With the help of these services, it can pull the users of Google towards itself.
