Japan wants to curb the duopoly of Apple and Google smartphone apps

In an effort to break the dominance of Apple and Google in the smartphone app ecosystem, the Japanese government wants to change the rules for app markets and payments to boost competition.

A bill proposed by Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s government would force the dominant platforms to allow third parties to launch their own app marketplaces and offer more payment options, while banning the tech giants from giving preferential treatment to their own Products.

Japan’s move comes at a time when antitrust authorities in other countries and regions are escalating their moves to curb the tech giants’ supremacy in the market.
