Bloomberg reports that Google has decided to retaliate against Match, which, if it wins in court, will allow it to receive considerable monetary compensation, as well as remove all dating apps owned by the company from the Play Store. This was in response to events in March of this year when Match brought legal charges against Google based on antitrust violations that forced all applications to process payments through the Play Store.
On the same note, even before the lawsuit, Google has decided to reduce the commissions for the developers allowing them to pay 15% of their revenues if it doesn’t exceed $1 million. If it does cross that threshold, the fee is increased to 30%. But at the same time, Google must make all payments exclusively through the Play Store.
