I wonder why nobody is mentioning the elephant in the room: Apple. They don’t even allow alternative browser engines on iOS. I guess MS is simply seeing what level of self-preferencing and controlled ecosystem etc. seem to be okay for others, so they also reintroduce all kinds of these things (e.g., they integrated Teams into Windows, preventing switching browsers etc.).

Probably, but there are huge differences between these two. Instagram was a young, insanely fast-growing company at the time (a potential competitor) while Giphy is a struggling company, running out of money, with no obvious business model (imo no real path to become a competitor).

It’s a huge overreach of the UK regulator. A US company buys a US company with no presence in the UK. They say, it significantly reduces competition in the advertising space. How so? The advertising business of Giphy was like nonexistent. This order probably won’t stand an appeal.

Apple Music doesn’t even have a Windows client, it’s not on the Xbox platform, et cetera. It’s missing a lot…

The amazing thing compared to other Lyrics offerings (such as from Apple Music), this works across platforms, on desktop, TV, consoles, iOS, Android. That’s huge! It took them time, but it’s worth it.
