According to the official Google Play Twitter feed, Verizon customers will soon be able to charge Google Play purchases directly to their bill, completely avoiding the use of a credit or debit card. Google Play tweeted the following:
Hey @Verizon Customers! Pay for Google Play apps, music and more on your phone bill. We’re rolling this out over the coming weeks. Enjoy!
While it’s great that Verizon is finally allowing their customers to add Play purchases to their bill, they’re pretty late to the party. In fact, Sprint and T-Mobile have been allowing their customers to add purchases to their bill for months. One reason that Verizon may have been lagging behind other carriers in terms of payments is the fact that they’re still trying to push V-Cast, Verizon’s proprietary app and ringtone marketplace. Unfortunately for Verizon, not many developers have put their apps up for purchase on V-Cast yet, so most Verizon customers still purchase their content via Google Play.
