The CEO of Spotify is expected that Apple is “open” to third-party apps

Spotify is optimistic about the fact that Apple will further its platform to third-party apps, said today CEO Daniel Ek in an interview with Bloomberg. What happens after that Spotify has submitted a complaint antitrust in the European Union last year.

“In the long term, we expect Apple to open,” said the CEO of Spotify in the interview. “You are moving in the right direction, but still has many, many steps before that Apple is a platform that is open and fair,” added Ek.

These statements come after Spotify, has filed a complaint against Apple with the european Commission on the App Store.

At the time, Spotify sued Apple because the latter retains a 30% commission from all revenues from sales by the App Store, including in app subscriptions. According to Spotify, this behavior hinders the competing services because of the fact perceive a lower level and can not in any way advertise (within the app or via email) the option of subscribing through the official website rather than via in-app, because otherwise it would violate Apple's rules that would lead to the ouster from the App Store.

Bloomberg has reported that Apple is considering the possibility of allowing iPhone users to set up third-party applications as the default, but it is not known if this will extend to the music app. It is rumored also that Apple is adding music services to a third party to the HomePod.

Finally, Ek has also pulled a shot at Apple's Music in the interview, saying that Spotify has double the number of subscribers and a commitment to three times higher.
