Tech regulation in Europe will only get tougher

European governments have been bringing the hammer down on tech in recent months, slapping record fines and stiff regulations on the largest imports out of Silicon Valley. Despite pleas from the world’s leading companies and Europe’s eroding trust in government, European citizens’ staunch support for regulation of new technologies points to an operating environment that is only getting tougher.

According to a roughly 25-page report recently published by a research arm out of Spain’s IE University, European citizens remain skeptical of tech disruption and want to handle their operators with kid gloves, even at a cost to the economy.

Twitter testing support for sharing and viewing Live Photos on iOS

Apple first introduced Live Photos alongside the iPhone 6S in 2015. Since then, however, the popularity of the feature has been affected by a lack of support on the majority of social networks. At long last, however, Twitter appears to be testing support for viewing Live Photos.

As noted by social media researcher Matt Navarra, code within Twitter for iOS hints at the app’s support for Live Photos. This would mean that in the Twitter app, you could upload Live Photos and view other Live Photos by long-pressing on them.

Supporting choice and competition in Europe

For nearly a decade, we’ve been in discussions with the European Commission about the way some of our products work. Throughout this process, we’ve always agreed on one thing一that healthy, thriving markets are in everyone’s interest. A key characteristic of open and competitive markets一and of Google’s products一is constant change. Every year, we make thousands of changes to our products, spurred by feedback from our partners and our users. Over the last few years, we’ve also made changes一to Google Shopping; to our mobile apps licenses; and to AdSense for Search一in direct response to formal concerns raised by the European Commission.  Since then, we’ve been listening carefully to the feedback we’re getting, both from the European Commission, and from others.

As a result, over the next few months, we’ll be making further updates to our products in Europe.Since 2017, when we adapted Google Shopping to comply with the Commission’s order, we’ve made a number of changes to respond to feedback. Recently, we’ve started testing a new format that gives direct links to comparison shopping sites, alongside specific product offers from merchants.  On Android phones, you’ve always been able to install any search engine or browser you want, irrespective of what came pre-installed on the phone when you bought it. In fact, a typical Android phone user will usually install around 50 additional apps on their phone.
