Google, Meta, Qualcomm team up to push for open digital ecosystems

Alphabet’s Google, Meta Platforms, Qualcomm, and seven additional technology firms joined forces on Wednesday to advocate for open digital ecosystems in response to new EU Tech regulations.

This collaborative effort, named the Coalition for Open Digital Ecosystems (CODE), aims to foster more open platforms and systems, enhancing growth and innovation in Europe. The group expressed its commitment to collaborating with academics, policymakers, and companies to explore digital openness within the framework of the Digital Markets Act (DMA) and future EU regulatory developments.

The DMA mandates that tech gatekeepers facilitate interoperability with third parties and enable business users to promote their offerings and conduct transactions outside the gatekeeper’s platform.

“We have had a number of conversations in the past few months about what ‘good’ looks like when it comes to digital ecosystems in Europe, what fosters innovation, and what will positively impact competitiveness. We think openness is the crucial element,” Lynx founder Stan Larroque said in a statement.

Other CODE members include Honor, Lenovo, Lynx, Motorola, Nothing, Opera, and Wire, representing a diverse coalition focused on promoting cross-industry collaboration and the opening of digital ecosystems through seamless connectivity and interoperable systems.
