Today, Google can preinstall apps on Android devices and set as defaults their own services, which millions of people won’t bother changing. This is wrong and anti-competitive. Users should have the choice to select their own defaults while setting up their phones.

The Digital Markets Act is a bold reform that can reinvigorate the tech sector. But if it doesn't ban pre-installation of default apps, it may fail at its job: to level the field and restore healthy competition. And there may not be another chance to get it right. #CompDM

I cannot think of a clearer example of any company, anywhere in the world, so blatently abusing their dominant market position.

Is there a reason for singling out Google here since Apple pretty much do the same & even worse by not allowing third party browser engine or app store at all...?
