UK:Investigation into Apple and Google’s mobile browser dominance
Mobile Browser Dominance
Hello friends today we will talking about Apple and Google’s mobile browser dominance. According to Sarah Cardell, interim chief executive of the CMA, “many UK businesses and web developers tell us they feel that restrictions set by Apple and Google are holding them back.”
The dominance of Apple and Google’s mobile browsers is the subject of an extensive inquiry by Britain’s antitrust authority, which was begun on Tuesday.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) claimed that responses to a survey it began in June indicated “substantial support” for a more thorough examination into the situation and if iPhone-maker Apple prohibits cloud gaming through its app store.
According to Sarah Cardell, interim chief executive of the CMA, “many UK businesses and web developers tell us they feel that restrictions set by Apple and Google are holding them back.”
If the complaints we have heard are valid, we intend to look into them and, if they are, to determine what can be done to increase competition and innovation in these fields.
According to Google, the Android mobile operating system offers customers the widest selection of apps and app shops of any other mobile platform.
“It also enables developers to choose the browser engine they want and has been the launchpad for millions of apps,” a spokesperson stated. “We’re committed to building thriving, open platforms that empower consumers and help developers build successful businesses.”
To demonstrate how its strategy “promotes competition and choice while ensuring that consumers’ privacy and security are protected,” Apple stated it would “constructiv[ly]” engage with the CMA.
Competition officials in Brussels, London, and other cities are paying more attention to American tech titans like Apple and Alphabet, which owns Google.
According to a statement made by Goo-gle last month, the EU and British antitrust regulators are looking into Google’s Play Store separately.
