Washington: Google and Apple have agreed to testify before a Congressional committee next month about consumer privacy issues related to smartphones, tablets, and other mobile technologies.

The two major American companies agreed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 10, a day after its Chairman, Patrick Leahy, shot off a letter to the CEOs of Apple and Google, encouraging them to consider the committee's invitation to appear.

"I am pleased that both Google and Apple have accepted the committee's invitation to testify about consumer privacy issues related to smartphones, tablets and other mobile technologies," Leahy said in a statement on Thursday.

"As the Congress works to update the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and other federal privacy laws, it is essential that policymakers and the American people have complete and accurate information about the privacy implications of these new technologies," Leahy said.
