Google offers UK developers the option to use third-party payment providers

  • Google may allow Android users in the UK to pay for apps and services on the platform through a billing system other than Google’s.
  • The offer comes after a ten-month investigation by the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) into Google’s payment system for in-app purchases.
  • The CMA previously found that Apple and Google held an anti-competitive position, and that Google’s Play Store could potentially lead to higher prices and reduced choice for Android users.
