google playRemember the other day we reported that thanks to a leaked screenshot, it seems that Verizon was set to (finally) introducing carrier billing for their subscribers who purchased apps on the Google Play store. Well the good news is that Google has since come forward and confirmed that and revealed that this feature is expected to roll out to customers over the next few weeks. Unfortunately apart from the confirmation, not much else was revealed regarding the new service. However if the previously leaked screenshot is to be believed, Verizon will be imposing a $25 cap per month that their customers can use to purchase apps from the Google Play store. It might seem limiting but we guess it’s to prevent bill shock from kids who might not be aware that some apps are paid and rack up bills worth hundreds of dollars.
