Google VS America According to Lawsuit On Play Store
According to the lawsuit, the first and foremost allegation is that Google reminded him of the fact that the Android operating system was “open,” as Google reminded him, currently having a 90 percent market share of all Android apps with the Play Store. The lawsuit alleges that Google took precautionary measures to maintain the dominance of the Play Store, preventing third-party app stores from searching or buying YouTube ads from Google and refusing to download them through the Play Store – which preceded every Android phone, including Google services Installed, such as outside of Huawei.
The lawsuit further alleges that Google paid them to continue using the Play Store when it came to several developers. This, the lawsuit alleges, kept users from using the Play Store to update their apps, in short, to make sure they weren’t able to leave. According to a Politico report, the lawsuit even alleges that Google tried to pay Samsung not to enter into an exclusive deal through its own app store, the Galaxy Store. According to reports, the deal did not go into effect. Google’s impending move to make it mandatory for app developers to share the 30 percent revenue cut with Android developers from September 30, 2020, is the key to this lawsuit. Notable app developers who provide subscription services, such as Spotify, Netflix, and many more, have already managed to avoid paying Google a huge chunk out of their subscription earnings. After Google’s new policy is implemented, they will be forced.
In response to the lawsuit, Wilson White, Google’s senior director of public policy, noted that the lawsuit against the company was “strange” in federal court, among other things. As part of his defense against the lawsuit, White said it was unfair to count the Apple App Store as one of the main competitors to the Google Play Store and that it misjudged the lawsuit by simply counting the App Store in the Android ecosystem. The reason, White says, is that Apple’s app ecosystem is one of the most successful in the world, and so, “if we don’t give them (users) the best experience on Google Play, they may have other options to choose from. White added that in contrast to the lawsuit claims, Google actually enables competition – he highlights the presence of the App Store which preloads each OEM with their custom Android interface as proof. Most Android devices are preloaded with two or more app stores. And popular Android devices like the Amazon Fire tablet are a competitive app store and not preloaded with any Google Play Store, “White said. – As Google has pushed the security aspect in parallel to actively discourage users from sideloading apps.
Finally, White highlights the amount the Play Store has earned for short-term developers and the number of times it has been created before it was created, “Android and Google Play and other platforms not only provide openness and choice. It’s not about giving, it’s about encouraging a handful of major app developers who want to take advantage of Google Play without paying for it. The hearing has not yet begun, here are a few things to consider. In the recent landmark Big Tech Court battle between Apple and Epic Games, Apple has dropped the security aspect on both their mobile operating systems iOS, Android, and its own MacOS, but Apple has backed up a considerable amount of its data in the Play Store. Google, in this note, may not completely ban third-party app stores and app downloads, but it discourages the average user from doing so. While the security implications are not external, questions remain about whether Google is even doing enough on the security front – or whether there is no human land here.
The second point, in this note, is Google’s recent move to Android App Bundle (AAB), a new file format that replaces long-standing APKS (app package). This move will require basically small, indie app developers to choose between two file formats as third-party app stores may continue to use the APP because Android will not officially stop supporting it later. Given that small developers will not have the resources to maintain two versions of their applications, they may be inclined to indirectly choose the Play Store – since the latter has a significantly larger number of users. It could also lead to Google’s untrustworthy plight in the long run. While the world is waiting for the verdict of Apple vs. Epic, Google America is the two challenges of Big Tech. So the question is, what if regulators and lawmakers have enough ammunition to implement any changes to how previous Android is run?
