This really does not matter now anyway since you can use any third party browser with custom user agent feature to play Stadia on iOS with Stadia Controller. The only advantage this app offered was using PS4 and Xbox controllers.

Apple isn't merely facilitating payment, they also developed the tools and programming libraries that make creation of apps for iOS possible. And they developed iOS too. And the hardware it runs on. What Sopify is delivering through the App Store is not equivalent to what Amazon is delivering to its customers through its app. Amazon is merely acting as a seller when it sells a physical product to one of its customers. That's no different from you or I using the eBay app to purchase some old coins from an eBay seller. Of course Apple isn't going to demand a cut of that transaction. This is different and you seem not to be able to recognize or acknowledge that.
It's Spotify who is being greedy by demanding of their own customers an additional 30% on top of the usual price of their service because they don't want to incur the costs of marketing, distribution and fulfillment provided by Apple to their most significant sales channel.
There is huge benefit for being in iOS App Store. Entire businesses started from scratch and became multimillion dollar corporations for being there. If it wasn't that important then you wouldn't see Spotify spending that much effort and making that much noise trying to be in the App Store.

The internet has been around a while, but not so long that people are already so numb to the Internet they're naive enough they think just random redirecting all over the Internet is just great stuff. Are these people a bunch of entitled grandmas or something?
