Music streaming service Spotify has accused American company Apple, which unveiled Apple One subscriptions the day before, of unfair competition, Reuters reported, citing a statement from Spotify.

On September 15, Apple announced as part of its presentation that it is developing a subscription package called Apple One, which will include TV + along with discounted access to other services such as Apple Music and Apple Arcade.

"We urge antitrust authorities to take urgent action to curb Apple's anticompetitive behavior that will harm the developer community... if it is not controlled," the agency quoted Spotify in a statement.

Spotify is an audio streaming service that lets you listen to music online legally and for free without downloading it to your computer. The service is available mainly in the Americas and Europe.
