Google to Pay $700M in Play Store Dispute Settlement | Robots.net
  1. Google settles a class-action lawsuit over its Play Store for $700 million, allocating $630 million to U.S. consumers and $70 million to a state fund.
  2. The lawsuit highlighted Google’s app distribution monopoly on Android through the Play Store.
  3. As part of the settlement, Google will expand its user choice billing program, allowing developers to display varied costs based on payment methods chosen by customers.
  4. The company will streamline the sideloading process for at least five years, merging warning pop-ups and settings screens.
  5. Epic Games criticizes the settlement, stating it won’t provide true relief to consumers due to Google’s fees and restrictions on app distribution and payments. Epic plans to seek further remedies to open up the Android ecosystem in the ongoing case with Google.
