According to the regulator’s most recent decision, Google dominates the Indian marketplaces for app stores for Android smart mobile OS and licensable OS for smart mobile devices.
“One significant way that app developers are able to monetize their discoveries and creations is through the sale of in-app digital items. However, developers must set up their apps so that every purchase of in-app digital items passes via Google’s payment system, which handles the transactions, in order for those customers to receive them.
India has the most users among all Google’s markets. Google was also told by the CCI to stop engaging in anti-competitive behavior. The tech juggernaut has been given 30 days to submit the necessary financial information and accompanying paperwork.
