Hi, what are you looking for?

Attend Our Briefing: Impact of CCI orders on Android & Google Play Store

Imagine buying a new Android phone and having the option to choose DuckDuckGo as your search engine right from the set up screen or being able to use Razorpay to pay for in-app purchases. These are some of the possible outcomes if the Competition Commission of India’s (CCI) latest orders against Google’s Android and Play Store are implemented.

In this MediaNama Briefing, we will dive into the impacts of these orders on smartphone manufacturers, app developers, consumers, and on Google itself.

What we will cover

Through this discussion, we are going to examine:

  1. What are the primary concerns that app developers have against app stores?
  2. What changes must Google make to Android and Play Store policies?
  3. How will these changes impact smartphone manufacturers?
  4. Will there be a rise in Android forks, and if so, will fragmentation of Android harm developers and consumers
  5. How will the changes impact Indian app developers? Will they be able to avoid Google’s hefty commissions
  6. What does it mean for consumers? Will they see lower prices for in-app purchases?
  7. Will these changes affect the security of users on Android?
  8. Why is CCI not considering Apple iOS as part of the same relevant market as Google Android?
  9. How are the CCI orders different from similar decisions dealt with globally?
  10. What are some grounds that Google can challenge both these orders on?
