Google will stand to lose a whole lot more than a cut of Tinder's revenue if other apps follow suit, for sure.
According to a report on Bloomberg, Tinder now has a new default payment process that will allow you to enter your credit card details directly into their app.
It's completely down to earth for Android engineers to empower direct payments without utilizing Google Play, yet that regularly means bypassing Google Play by and large, similar to Epic did with Fortnite. Once a user has entered their payment information, the app not only remembers it, but also removes the choice to swap back to Google Play for future purchases, he wrote. The latest company making a fuss is Match Inc., maker of the Tinder dating app. "We'll always try to present options that benefit their experience and offering cost options is one example of this". Now popular dating app Tinder has joined the ranks of revoting app developers who are by-passing Google Play Store.
Google meanwhile hasn't responded to the development so far. Both the companies charge up to 30% in fees when a user makes a purchase on Google Play or App Store.

Over the past few years, there has been growing criticism from developers towards the substantial cuts that app stores take from purchases, both for applications themselves and in-app transcations.
Despite Apple's steadfast approach to App Store fees, Spotify has filed an antitrust complaint against Apple with the European Commission looking to get changes forced by way of regulation. Apple gets the majority of the income from Apple Music memberships at $10 every month, for example, yet Spotify just gets $7 from in-application memberships. It remains to be seen what Google's response to Tinder would be or whether the company is willing to pull down the app.
Tinder is investigating an alternate way to deal with app store fees - it's essentially disregarding what the store administrators need.
Macquarie analyst Ben Schachter says that Tinder will probably not have a massive effect yen since it's a relatively small app.
