Microsoft Teams unbundling proposal reviewed by EU regulators and rivals

After the European Commission (EU) opened up an antitrust inquisition into Microsoft’s budling practices with its enterprise chat platform Teams, the company is now proposing an unbundling solution that is getting scrutinized by regulatory body and its market competitors.

After the European Commission (EU) opened up an antitrust inquisition into Microsoft’s budling practices with its enterprise chat platform Teams, the company is now proposing an unbundling solution that is getting scrutinized by regulatory body and its market competitors.

According to a report from Reuters, EU regulators were recently given a proposal from Microsoft that would have the company unbundle its Teams conference app from the rest of its flagship Office productivity suite.

However, in a more unprecedented move, the EU is also sharing Microsoft’s proposal with its market competitors to judge if the company’s latest suggestion can avoid antitrust scrutiny.

The EU is doing more than an elbow and nudge when allowing rivals to weigh in on Microsoft’s new regulatory proposition. Teams rivals are being asked by the EU to “provide feedback from potential customers on how their services could operate in tandem with Microsoft’s services, the pricing of products with and without Teams and eligibility criteria.”

Microsoft’s proposal was submitted back in August and comes ahead of what some insiders believe to be a formal statement of objection to the company’s current business strategy in the EU at the beginning of next year.
