Google once again extends the Play Billing Policy Deadline for app developers
Google has once again extended the deadline for the app developers to integrate the payment system with Play Store’s billing system in India. The deadline which was previously set at March 31, 2022, is now extended to October 31, 2022. A spokesperson of the company has said that they are extending the date to provide the users with a convenient payment system that will include UPI and wallets. The statement also included that it will also help the users to understand India’s recurring digital payments guidelines.
The extended deadline has provided the app developers with more time, but the company is not planning to change its billing system. Google and Apple have been facing criticism in regards to their app store billing system. South Korea has already banned Apple and Google from preventing app developers from using the other billing systems in the country. An antitrust probe from the Competition Commission of India is also filed against Google for the mandatory use of its billing system.
