We got the secret Google Spotify numbers — maybe.

This was Google’s proposed counterproposal to Spotify — it’s not clear whether they’re the final sweetheart deal:

Google will charge a service fee of 6% on all transactions to reflect the value realized of operating the platform, distributing, publishing updating, loyalty, and investing in the user experience for Spotify users. In addition, we will also charge a 10% fee where and if Google enables new subscribers to transact via Play.

We saw a 2x2 matrix where Spotify had a 0 percent processing fee and 6 percent service fee and Google had a 10 percent processing fee and 6 percent service fee.
