ACM to complete market study into mobile app stores in April
The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) will complete its market study into the Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store in April. With this study, ACM wants to understand better how app providers get their apps in app stores, as well as what influence app stores have on the selection of apps from which end-users can choose. As such, ACM examines similar practices as described in the complaint filed by Spotify against Apple. If other market participants have any similar complaints, we are calling on them to file such complaints with us. ACM has been in touch with the European Commission about this.
