Google stops enforcing Play Store billing in India after antitrust order

Following a recent ruling by India’s competition regulator, Google announced it has halted the enforcement of its Play Store billing policy in the country, which requires developers to pay up to 30% for in-app purchases. The announcement arrives days after the Competition Commission of India ordered Google to let app developers use alternative payment systems and fined it $113 million for abusing its market power. The country also issued a fine of $161.9 million on the company the previous week for being anti-competitive in the Android mobile device market.
