    Many apps dont have a P&L in microsoft, google, Facebook, etc so don't get attached to P&L concept.

      Example: Microsoft Word. That's an app but user pays for entire Office suite. There are separate commerce/acquisition/retention teams managing subscription level P&L but app team mainly cares about engagement with their app.

      Thanks, so basically there’s usually a org structure that separates product and finance/growth/etc. teams?

      For Office that's the case. Depending on the product might be more integrated (e.g. Bing)
