Match Group, the owner of popular dating apps such as Match, Tinder, and Hinge, has dropped its antitrust lawsuit against Google's app store. The settlement allows Match Group to offer alternative payment options for in-app content without being required to use Google's payment channels. This settlement reduces the number of plaintiffs Google will face in the upcoming trial, with Epic Games being the only remaining opponent. The outcome of these app store cases could have significant implications for app developers and the flow of economic activity. As part of the settlement, Google will include Match's apps in its user choice billing program, allowing Match to offer its own payment channels with lower fees than Google's. However, transactions processed through Google's channels will still be subject to Google's standard in-app payment fees. In addition, $40 million held in escrow for the litigation will be returned to Match. Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney has vowed to continue the trial against Google alone, rejecting Google's "user choice billing" system.
