Verizon, Google bring carrier-billing for Google Play buys

updated 11:03 am EDT, Fri October 19, 2012

Carrier billing will begin rolling out over the next few weeks

Verizon subscribers with Android devices will soon get the option of paying for their Google Play purchases on their monthly bills rather than with a credit or gift card. The Twitter announcement revealed the change will be phased in over the course of the next few weeks. With the move, Verizon joins AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile in offering the option.

Presumably, all content available on Google Play, including movies, apps, e-books, and music could be billed to the Verizon account, rather than separately.

It certainly took Verizon long enough to make the jump, considering Sprint began offering the option back in April of last year, AT&T in December of 2010, and T-Mobile about a full year before AT&T.
