In 2021, Google Play allegedly made 79 cents per every app download.

We’ve gotten to the part of Epic’s expert economist testimony where Bernheim is arguing that Google profits from monopoly power. His first big point: Google is making five times more from app downloads than it did in 2015.

78 cents per app download in 2021, he says — compared to 61 cents in 2020, 46 cents in 2019, 35 cents in 2018, 26 cents in 2017, 19 cents in 2016, and 15 cents in 2015.
