Google announces patent agreement with Tencent amid China push

The agreement with the Chinese social media and gaming firm Tencent covers a broad range of products and paves the way for collaboration on technology in the future, Google said on Friday, without disclosing any financial terms of the deal. BEIJING (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's Google has agreed to a patent licensing deal with Tencent Holdings Ltd as it looks for ways to expand in China where many of its products, such as app store, search engine and email service, are blocked by regulators. The company announced this month that it had invested in Chinese livestream gaming app Chushou, which is similar to Google's own YouTube game livestreaming services. "By working together on agreements such as this, tech companies can focus on building better products and services for their users," said Mike Lee, Google's head of patents.
