Google Play Now Supports Carrier Billing For Music, Movies, And Books With Select Carriers

If you don’t like using your credit card for Google Play media, Google just introduced support for carrier billing. You can now purchase books, movies, and music and have it charged to your phone bill instead of to a card. For now, it only works on T-Mobile in the US (Sprint support is soon to come) and NTT Docomo, KDDI, and Softbank in Japan.

While AT&T offers carrier billing, it currently only works for app purchases. Media purchases still have to be charged to a credit card. Strangely, Verizon has absolutely no carrier billing support. If you’d like more info on the new carrier support, check out the original Google+ post.

Now I don’t use carrier billing. I use a debit card. I know how much money I have on there and use that to gauge whether I want to purchase an app. But having that option is great, and is really useful to people I know. Do you have carrier billing available to you? Would you/do you use it? Report down below in the comments!
