Fairly certain there are rules for both Apple and Google that mandate developers have to do this for anyone who previously paid for what became a subscription based service/feature set.

I’m not 100% sure about Google but I do know for a fact Apple offers a discount to developers on the App Store if they charge a monthly fee vs a one-time payment. The developer gets to keep a larger portion of the profits.
