Would like to see a 30% discount also in app purchases like in the games but thats have nothing to do with google.
I wonder how this will affect VPN app. I pay via the website, as it cheaper than via Apple/Google in app purchase. But i use on my MAC/PC/Iphone/Andriod.
simply download a crack version of the same. and sideload it on ur phone :P
sounds cheap but efeective and helpful.
no need to pay money to any1. xD
It's Android, we don't care about a particular app being removed from Playstore coz it failed to comply with Google's 30% cut scheme.
Sideloading is super easy on Android.
Adul Al Salami Kebab, 30 Sep 2020Does not help when Google keeps demanding apps ONLY to work with their payment system, worse y... moreIf apps only with with google ecosystem, then you should blame the developer. Or you can think that google help developer to make trustworthy ecosystem.
For example widevine in netflix, or banking apps need safetynet to run.
Harsh, 30 Sep 2020How about this?
All TV makers (Samsung, LG, Sony etc...) should start cutting (charging) 30... moreI don't understand what you mean. This article is actually important for developer, not end user.
You simply buy the whatever you want to buy, the tax/charge to playstore will be paid by developer/you depend how you think. You will not see how much the tax /charge to playstore, because the bill goes to developer and developer pay that.
Huawei's AppGallery only take 15% and only if the app maker is established
Harsh, 30 Sep 2020How about this? All TV makers (Samsung, LG, Sony etc...) should start cutting (charging) 30... moreIt already happens.. whenever you pay for your internet its baked into the profit margins of the internet company (if not sony or samsung its someone else who profits), whenever fill up gas its baked into the profits and taxes.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2020That's fine then make them good like apples no crap appsthat is so dumb, there are terrible apps on both stores, the difference being, on the play store those apps are usually free, no mormal android user would pay for that garbage content, way more rubbish ones still need paying for on IOS, what would be better is getting rid of a ton of those poor quality apps on both platforms and streamline the content to be higher quality, better performance all round worthy content
toukale, 30 Sep 2020I always get a kick out of comments like this. A few big companies that has the money can sta... moreSo I will weigh in as a developer. I know i am in the minority here, but multiple stores will introduce headaches and hassles to small developers as well. We as developers will probably have to distribute the APK file across all the app stores possible, which means some features specific to the Google Play Store will need to be re-adapted or removed for each store (e.g. In-App Billing, APK Bundles, etc...). Also, depending on the store, the crash reports that are well detailed in Play Console will be gone, so we will need to integrate third-party libs for error reporting such as Crashlytics or similar, probably increasing the size of the release APK. Not only the developers will suffer, the users will get their bad end of the deal as well. With multiple stores, it is inevitable that some apps will be exclusively released on one of the stores. Now as a user, you have to download a whole other store to just get an app you desire. It might sound easy for techies, but omg will it be hard to explain this to the rest of the people. Multiple stores will only benefit the rich (ahm Epic)!
And people were bashing only apple in that epic games article.. 😂😂
How about this?
All TV makers (Samsung, LG, Sony etc...) should start cutting (charging) 30% from paid content viewed by customers. Similar way all automobile industries should start cutting (charging) 30% from GAS fill up.
So basically even after paying full price of the equipment (electronics, automobile etc...), customers must be charged (punished) 30% from anything they buy for their equipment.
so will we see price increase in PlayStore

Adul Al Salami kebab, 30 Sep 2020WRONG! Most apps demand GMS to even work, and if they MOST have Google payments then have GMS ... moreTikTok now won't run unless you have GSM installed.
So I uninstalled it straight away. :-)
FarFan, 30 Sep 2020So actually for third-party stores prices there will be two commissions - commission of store ... moreNo. You can install third-party app stores using the web browser. Then Google can’t take a cut.
That's fine then make them good like apples no crap apps
