After skipping a congressional hearing in August, Google says it will appear before the US House of Representatives in November.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, Reuters reported earlier Friday and Pichai has confirmed.

The announcement follows a private meeting Pichai reportedly had with top Republican lawmakers, set up by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, to discuss a variety of topics, including the Google's alleged political bias in search results.

Google has denied it has such a bias.

"The last two days' discussions with a wide range of congressional leaders were constructive and informative," said Pichai in an email statement.

"As we've done for over a decade, including testifying to Congress 22 times since 2008, we remain committed to continuing an active dialogue with members from both sides of the aisle, working proactively with Congress on a variety of issues, explaining how our products help millions of American consumers and businesses, and answering questions as they arise.
