After Apple’s recent announcement about the major changes coming to the App Store, Google is keen to take the same steps and has been testing similar changes to subscriptions on Google Play.

Right now, Google takes a 70/30 revenue split for all Play Store subscriptions. Much like Apple, Google will be changing over to a 85/15 revenue split for subscriptions, reports Recode. That is, ALL developers selling subscription-based apps on Google Play now get 85% instead of just 70% revenue.

However, it’s unclear when Google plans to announce this or implement it for developers.

spotify-family-1499

Spotify, the popular music streaming service and Apple Music’s direct competitor has today announced new pricing for their Family Plan. Starting today, Spotify’s Family Plan will be available at $14.99 a month (similar to Apple Music’s pricing) and will now include six total users instead of five.

Just in time for summer, we’re happy to share that starting today, Spotify Family Plan now provides families with up to six individual Spotify Premium accounts for only $14.99 a month (or local pricing).
Already on the Family Plan? Don’t worry, you still get everything you’ve come to love! Your Family Plan still includes separate accounts, your own playlists, personal recommendations and offline listening, but now at a better price, updated from your next payment date, and the ability to add even more family members to the same plan.

You can sign up for this pricing model right away.

Weirdly enough, this new pricing has been rolled out across all the countries where Spotify is available, except Canada.

WhatsApp Enables End-To-End Encryption

WhatsApp has today announced on its blog that it has enabled end-to-end encryption in its apps. Starting today, the latest version of WhatsApp’s apps will have encryption turned on by default for everyone.

We live in a world where more of our data is digitized than ever before. Every day we see stories about sensitive records being improperly accessed or stolen. And if nothing is done, more of people’s digital information and communication will be vulnerable to attack in the years to come. Fortunately, end-to-end encryption protects us from these vulnerabilities.

Although a little surprising, considering WhatsApp is owned by Facebook, this sure is a welcome move.
