Airtel, Vodafone postpaid users now eligible for Google Play carrier billing

Apart from direct carrier billing option, you can also pay using debit/credit cards, Play Store gift cards and Netbanking as a payment method in India.

Google seems to be in the midst of adding Vodafone and Airtel to its list of supported carriers in the Play Store. In the bill, the customers can be able to see their purchases along with a billing statement under "Google Play Purchases". Now, Vodafone and Airtel postpaid users are finally seeing this billing option in their Android smartphones. Google had officially announced the partnership at the Google Playtime event in India in October but didn't share any timeline.

Though there is news that the facility has been rolled out for the Airtel and Vodafone users, the payment options do not display the Airtel and Vodafone but continue displaying the payment option for Idea only. Now, it will be available for Vodafone as well as Airtel users in India. For instance, if a user wants to buy an app from the Play Store, they can simply purchase it and the charge will be carried forward to the user's carrier account within the next 15 minutes.

The in-build operator billing feature also extends to in-app purchases. The two have started showing up as an option among a number of users, indicating a broader release is likely on its way.

One of the preferred mode of payment in Google Play Store overseas, the service helps users buy apps, games, and content on Google Play Store without the need of a Credit or Debit Card. This report also revealed that the company is working on expanding its support for different payment platforms among other initiatives. "What we are excited about is giving developers that single entry point for more and more of the computing ecosystem", said Sameer Samat, Vice President Product Management at Google.
