Google Updates Rules on Play Store So Developers Can't Avoid 30% Commissions

Some time ago Google deleted the game made by Epic Games, Fortnite, from the Play Store because the game had violated Google’s rules. The rules that are violated are the rules of the payment system that are not through Google Play.

Not wanting to prolong the problem like Apple, Google has finally decided to update its rules and policies on the Google Play Store. Reported by Bloomberg, the new rules on the Play Store are now making it more difficult for developers to avoid giving a commission of 30%.

It is stated that later Google will not allow application developers to present a payment system outside of Google’s payment system. Here is a breakdown of the new rules:

Developers who present products on Google Play that provide access to in-game content must use Google Play In-app Billing as their payment method, except for:

  • Payment for physical products
  • Payment for digital content that comes from outside the application itself (example: songs)

Google itself hopes that with the new rules, hopefully, application and game developers on the Google Play Store can comply more with the rules on the platform.

The reason is that Google certainly doesn’t want problems like the Epic Games case to happen again for the second time and makes Google forced to delete applications or games that violate these rules on its platform.

Google Assistant Can Now Tie Your Shoelaces If Your Shoes Are Nike Adapt

Google today announced some of the changes brought to the Google Assistant. This change provides support for users to be able to control applications on their smartphones using voice commands.

So what are the benefits of the update to the Google Assistant? Recently the 9to5Google site uploaded a video showing one of the uses for the Google Assistant which can control Android applications.

In the 20-second video uploaded to YouTube, it appears that a man is wearing Nike Adapt shoes. Then the man opened Google Assistant and ordered the Nike Adapt application to tie the two shoes he was wearing until 100%.

As a result, Google Assistant immediately opened the Nike Adapt application and carried out the command as mentioned by the man, namely tying his two shoes up to 100%. Of course, this makes the man not need to use his hands to press a button to tie his shoes.

Not only can you tie the shoe, it is known that users can also check the battery of the Nike Adapt shoe and instruct the Google Assistant to change the color of the shoe is just a voice command.

Of course, this is still one use for updating the Google Assistant. Users can still find ways to take advantage of the Google Assistant to instruct applications to do things that can make it easier for users.
