Google is saying it won’t be making any major changes to its search business.
The search giant is laying off more than 3,000 employees in the United States and the European Union, the company said Thursday.
The layoffs were announced in an earnings release, and the company didn’t offer a reason for the cuts.
Google announced the cuts in a separate filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The company has been struggling to make the leap from a web search business to one focused on apps.
The move will likely add to a string of changes for Google in the past few months, including a move to the cloud, and a pivot toward more services that will cater to the needs of advertisers and publishers.
Google said it would invest more than $10 billion in the U.S. over the next five years, with the bulk of the money coming from a $20 billion buyout of rival Motorola Mobility.
The company also said it will invest $1 billion in its global enterprise software unit, with a focus on software that can help companies with complex operations and analytics.
Google has been under pressure in recent months to move away from its traditional web search operations and focus on apps, as it seeks to compete with Amazon, Facebook and other companies.
Google’s search business, which it started as a company that built web search and search ads in the 1990s, has been hurt by falling search volume and its reliance on mobile apps.
The search business has also suffered from competition from Amazon and other platforms, which have offered their own versions of the same services.
