TECH CRUNCH - A competition complaint against Google's Android Play Store by Match Group, has led to a preliminary investigation by the Netherlands' Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) into whether the tech giant is abusing a dominant position. "Dating-app providers allegedly are no longer able to use a payment system other than Google's payment system. In addition, dating apps claim they are no longer allowed to refer to other payment methods either," the ACM said. A Google spokesperson said: Match Group's apps are eligible to pay just 15% on Google Play, which is the lowest rate among major app platforms. But even if they don't want to comply with Google Play's policies, Android still provides them multiple ways of distributing their apps to Android users, including through other Android app stores, directly to users via their website or as consumption-only apps.
