The fight for paid apps on Android is extensive and it seems that users are opting for productivity rather than entertainment when it comes to shopping.
Because unlike what you might think, neither Tinder nor the most popular mobile video game, Fortnite, is one of the apps that generates the most income.
Rather it is Google One, the storage platform of the Mountain View giant, which beats Tinder and Disney Plus, according to a report by Sensor Tower.
Subscription to Google One costs $ 19.99 annually for a total of 100GB of cloud storage. Google users have a basic 15GB service. There are options up to 30TB, which costs a whopping $ 3,000 a year.
