Google to allow for alternate payment systems on Match Group’s apps

Match Group Inc has said that Alphabet Inc’s Google will allow the dating apps maker to offer users a choice in payment systems.

This means that Google’s control over user data is being eliminated.

Match sued Google early May, calling the action a “last resort” to prevent Tinder and its other apps from being booted off the Google Play store.

Match refused to share up to 30% of sales.

Match has withdrawn its request for a temporary restraining order against Google after some concessions, including eliminating its complete control over user data.
