European Union antitrust regulators said on Wednesday that they have found numerous concerns over anti-competitive practices among companies active in the voice assistant devices sector following a year-long investigation.

"When we launched this sector inquiry, we were concerned that there might be a risk of gatekeepers emerging in this sector. From the first results published today, it appears that many in the sector share our concerns," European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in a statement.

The three largest players in the sector are Amazon, Apple and Google.
