In an inconspicuous dig at Apple and Google, which face antitrust charges, Microsoft announced on Thursday a set of 10 principles for its app store. Microsoft promises that it will allow competitive app stores on the windows platform, and that it will treat its own apps and those of other companies with the same standards. < / P > < p > finally, Microsoft will allow any developer in its store as long as it meets objective standards and requirements, including security, privacy, quality, content and digital security. Developers will be free to choose whether to publish their windows apps through our app store. We don’t block competitive app stores on windows. < / P > < p > 2. We will not block applications on Windows based on the business model of developers or the way they provide content and services, including whether the content is installed on the device or streaming from the cloud. < / P > < p > 3. We don’t block applications from windows because developers choose which payment system to use to process their purchases. < p > < p > 4. In accordance with our interoperability principles, we will provide developers with deepl in a timely manner to let them know about the interoperability interfaces we use on windows. Every developer can enter our app store as long as they meet the objective standards and requirements, including security, privacy, quality, content and digital security. < / P > < p > 6. Our app store will charge a reasonable fee to reflect the competition we face from other app stores on windows, and will not force developers to sell anything in their apps that they don’t want to sell. < / P > < p > 10. Our app store will be transparent about its rules and policies, as well as promotion and marketing opportunities, consistently and objectively apply these rules and policies, provide change notifications, and provide a fair process to resolve disputes. < / P > < p > Microsoft finally mentioned that it would review these principles from time to time to determine whether they should be added or changed to reflect feedback and technical, business or regulatory developments. < / P > < p > “by accepting these principles, Microsoft will help create a level playing field for developers large and small, provide consumers with more choices, and hope to encourage other platforms to do the same.” Spotify spokesman said in a statement that it supported Microsoft’s policy around the Microsoft Store. < / P > < p > “I’m glad to see Microsoft officially announce its long-standing principles in windows as an open platform and fair market for all developers and consumers.” Tim Sweeney, chief executive and founder of epic, said in a statement. < p > < p > game makers like Microsoft have invested a lot of money in developing dedicated game console hardware, but they are selling it at a lower cost or at a very low profit to create a market in which game developers and publishers can benefit. Given these fundamental differences in platform meaning and business model, we have more work to do to establish the right set of principles for the game console.
