Google first introduced carrier billing only for Idea customers in May. Now, the company has expanded the feature to two of the country’s largest mobile networks.
With this, both Vodafone and Airtel users can buy apps and other digital content from Google Play using their carrier bills. For example, when you buy an app, you’ll see the charge on your carrier account. This feature is live only for postpaid users and there is no update from the company on when prepaid users will see this feature.
To add your Carrier to Google Play, follow the steps:
Go to Google Play Store app. Head over to Account -> Payment Methods -> Add Payment Method. Select ‘Use Vodafone or Airtel Billing’, an activation SMS will be sent free of charge. After verification, you need to save the payment method, and agree to Vodafone or Airtel’s Terms and conditions.
