Google confirms changes to comply with South Korean law requiring alternative billing options, Apple remains quiet

We are almost through the first week of November 2021, and it looks like Apple is doing everything it can to drag its feet when it comes to a brand new requirement regarding third-party billing options in the Play Store.

Google lowers Play Store fees for subscription and music streaming apps to 15%

The landscape for digital storefronts is changing quite a bit. That is thanks, at least in part, to a lot of outside voices demanding those changes. Apple, for its part, remains reluctant to make any sweeping changes that don't ultimately benefit the company. But, it has made some changes, and there appear to be even more in the works. Meanwhile, Google has had to make some changes to its Play Store, too, and today marks the arrival of yet another.

Google announces the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro with improved cameras and much more

Google has been releasing phones for many years now. And while the company has picked up plenty of love and attention from customers, the company's efforts have not reached Apple-level sales. Some have said it's because Google's attempts haven't reached the same heights as iPhones of the past.
