The change comes as Google faces intense scrutiny from app developers.
Google on Monday said it’s clarifying its policies for app makers on its Play Store marketplace, telling developers they have up to a year to get in compliance with its policies for in-app purchases.
The system, which allows Google to take a 30% cut of in-app purchases, has been criticized sharply by developers who argue it’s too high a tax to use Google’s mobile platform. Apple, which takes the same cut from developers who use its App Store for iPhones, has also faced intense scrutiny. Some companies, like Spotify and Netflix, have skirted the policy by encouraging people to use the companies’ own billing systems.
