Apple and Google are under investigation by the UK Competition Authority

Apple and Google are under investigation by the UK Competition Authority

The UK’s Competition and Trade Authority (CMA) has launched an investigation into Apple and Google’s dominance of mobile ecosystems, believing the two companies to be a duopoly.

The CMA believes that Google and Apple are able to exert a “bottleneck” on mobile operating systems, stores and browsers, especially after finding that in the UK, 97% of internet browsing on a mobile device was done in a Google or Apple browser.

Finding out how the two companies dominate unopposed in the mobile space and how Apple is hindering cloud gaming on iOS devices is on the agenda for the CMA. According to him, there are more than 800 thousand people in the UK playing games through the cloud, but the growth may be affected by restrictions on the distribution of services.

Xbox Cloud Gaming, for example, is currently only available on iOS through browsers, while cloud gaming on Android devices is supported by the Xbox Game Pass app.

Ensuring UK customers and app makers receive the best services and investing in innovative applications, respectively, is CMA’s desire.
