Starting on the first of October! Android refuses to yield: it will impose charges

Google is more decisive than Apple when charging for Android.

Google said on Monday that instead of using a different payment system, developers would move to Google’s system before September 30, 2021. 30 percent of user fees would be taken from Google’s scheme. This suggests that the Google App Store rules would be compatible with the Apple App Store.

This news among developers has caused quite a lot of frustration. Since everyone has shown strong opposition, there would be no room for Google to maneuver on this issue. To put it simply, the commission is not going to make any compromises.

The related rise in software service charges is unavoidable for consumers if there is a rake, which is clearly a condition that has a direct effect.

“In the signed announcement, Sameer Samat, Google’s vice president of product management, stated:” We want to ensure that our policy is transparent and up-to – date so that it can be reasonably and reliably applied to all developers. We have therefore revised the related payment policy to more specifically enable all developers to use the payment system of Google Play when selling digital products in their applications.

This matter is bound to draw the attention of regulators, considering Android ‘s current absolute leading position in the world, which is undoubtedly what Google will face in the future.
