Match, maker of dating app Tinder, has reached a deal with Google over app store billing rules
Match Group, maker of dating apps like Tinder and OkCupid, said On May 20 that IT had withdrawn its request for a judge to grant a temporary restraining order against Google, Said Google had made concessions demanded by Match Group.
The concessions include assurances from Google that Match Group's apps will not be rejected or removed from the Play Store for offering an alternative to Google billing, Match Group said.
Match Group also says IT has agreed to deposit up to $40 million into escrow accounts, rather than directly paying Google for transactions that occur on Android outside of Google Play Billing (GPB), IT Home has learned.
Match Group sued Google for monopoly on May 9, saying it was a way to prevent its apps from being removed from the Play Store for refusing to pay up to 30 percent of its revenue.
