Google has temporarily paused its in-house Play Store billing service for app developers in India following a recent CCI ruling. The search giant had set a deadline of October 31 for developers to comply with its policies. Google announced this via its Google Play support page stating, “Developers in India were given an additional extension until October 31, 2022 to comply due to unique circumstances with the payments landscape in the country. Following the CCI’s recent ruling, we are pausing enforcement of the requirement for developers to use Google Play’s billing system for the purchase of digital goods and services for transactions by users in India while we review our legal options and ensure we can continue to invest in Android and Play. The requirement to use Google Play’s billing system applies for in-app digital content purchases for users outside of India.”
