Spotify’s new deal with Google allows it to skip paying Play Store fees

So, turns out Spotify and Google had this secret deal that let Spotify dodge the commission fees when folks signed up for subscriptions on Android using Spotify’s own payment system. In the ongoing Epic v. Google trial, the details spilled out – Spotify paid Google just four percent commission if users signed up through Google, a sweet deal compared to the usual 15 percent for subscriptions via the Google Play Store.
