Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) have been pulling the mobile market in two different directions. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is gaining some momentum, but it might take a while till it’s an actual threat. It will be even harder to step on the leaders’ tails as Bloomberg brought up the news that Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) has an app on Google Play.
“Consumers are now able to get Walt Disney’s movie app on their Google Android Devices. Previously they only had a partnership with Apple. The move gives Disney more avenues for where and how its movies could be seen so you can continue to watch,” said Betty Liu.
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Android is already the most popular operating system, beating Windows due to the tremendous number of mobile devices spread across the world. According to sources, it has reached 83.6% market share among the operating systems for smartphones, it can be seen on practically any phone that is in the most popular list. So, it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise that the bargaining power sided with Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) too. There’s a lot of catching up to do in terms of marketing and popularity, because Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is undoubtedly a tough opponent. However, on the deal with Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS), the two heavyweights have just embraced each other and refuse to fight.
“This is for the first time, that I know of, you’ll be able to listen to something you bought on iTunes on an Android device. […] Bloomberg provides employees with Android devices and we all have personally iPhones,” said Matt Miller.
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s core activities go way beyond the borders of its app platform and the revenues will not feel that much of a push. Nevertheless, this was not meant to bump the tech colossus’ price per share, rather inform Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s customers of new features. Billionaire Stan Druckenmiller is a big Google fan.
