Android Market Gets Carrier Billing In Europe and South Korea

Since the last one year or so, Google has been working hard to improve the Android Market. The company launched a web version of the market, with OTA installation support, along with a new revamped version of the market.


Google also added operator billing support in many countries, and with today’s announcement they are bringing carrier billing to additional carriers in South Korea, the UK and Germany. Currently, Android users in U.S can enjoy operator billing on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint networks, while Android users in Japan can use the carrier billing option on SoftBank, KDDI, and NTT DoCoMo networks.

Android users in South Korea can now enjoy carrier billings on two of the most popular networks, SK Telecom and KT Corporation. Android users in Europe can enjoy carrier billing on Vodafone UK and Vodafone DE. Initially, the service would be available only for Vodafone branded Android users in Europe.

Hopefully, Google will keep on adding carrier billing support in more countries especially in India, and other emerging countries, where not everyone owns a Credit Card.
