Google has ended a patent war with Microsoft over video compression technology used in the Xbox 360.

The firm had also argued that Microsoft was using its wi-fi innovations.

Google has now asked the US International Trade Commission, which handles patent disputes, to withdraw both claims.

It had previously said in court that Microsoft should pay up to $4bn (2.5bn) a year to use its connectivity and video coding patents.
