The European Commission is forcing Microsoft to make changes to Windows 11 in EU countries, but Microsoft Edge, the company’s Bing search engine, and Microsoft Advertising have all been spared from the EU’s Digital Markets Act. EU regulators have analyzed Microsoft’s argument against the DMA for Bing, Edge, and Microsoft Advertising and agreed they do not qualify as gatekeeper services.
“We welcome the Commission’s decision to exempt Bing, Edge, and Microsoft Advertising, which operate as challengers in the market,” says Microsoft spokesperson Robin Koch in a statement to The Verge.
