Google is following Apple's example to impose a 30% cut on Android in app purchases, which is definitely not good news for developers.
The company has made it clear it will implement the app store rules from next year, which require developers who distribute Android apps in Google Play stores to use the google app in-payment system, foreign media reported.
Google has set aside a year for app developers to adjust, with a deadline of September 30, 2021. At that time, application developers will have to use Google's payment system instead of using its independent payment system. Google will extract 30% of its in app purchase income.
According to Google, existing policies also require app developers to use Google payment systems for in-app purchase transactions, but have not been implemented.
Because of the 30% draw, Epic Games openly challenged apple, which led to the "Fortress night" being quickly removed from the shelves. The back of the matter is that the developers are dissatisfied with Apple's excessive draw. Now that Android wants to join the team, it will certainly cause more dissatisfaction from developers.
Some industry insiders say frankly that although Android is an open source system, Google is following Apple's example and controlling it more and more strictly, so as to obtain more profits and control rights.
