Spotify Declaring War On Apple

Spotify wants Europe's competition watchdog to examine Apple for the way it runs the App Store.

Spotify has complained that the App Store's 30% tax on in-app subscriptions makes it less competitive than Apple's own streaming service, Apple Music.

But the obvious question is why Spotify isn't also going after Google, which also charges a levy for apps on its app store and has a music streaming service.

The problem boils down to the fact that Apple won't allow Spotify to advertise that subscriptions are cheaper through its website, not the app.
