In an ongoing lawsuit in the US, Google has offered to pay Rs 709 crore for a settlement with app developers. The company has agreed to pay this money in lieu of 30 percent commission charged from developers for purchases made by users on apps made for Android smartphones. However, the court is yet to agree to this proposal.
In a petition filed in a San Francisco court, the app developers had told that Google had made some agreements with them, also imposed many technical hurdles. The revenue sharing agreement also limits app development and related activities. A 30 per cent service charge was charged for most purchases made by users in the app through the Google Play billing system.
