Google Paying Up To 50 Percent More To Hackers Who Find Android Bugs

What would also be great is if Google paid you every time they abandoned a project or released another messaging app nobody asked for.

Googleآ…has reportedly paid a hefty $550,000 to 82 people for discovering various bugs in Android. It seems, however, as though Google wants to take things to the next level. The company will be offering between 33 percent and 50 percent more money than previously for reports of Android bugs filed after June 1, 2016. Researchers who show a proof of concept and a proposed patch will get 50 percent more, while others will get 33 percent more than previous payouts.
