If you’re the sort of person who likes having their bills consolidated as much as possible, then you might be pleased to learn that Google has expanded its carrier billing to Boost Mobile in the US. What this means is that your Google Play Store purchases can now be charged to your phone bill, so that you won’t have to deal with separate bills when it comes to all things related to your phone.

Boost Mobile will be the latest carrier to be supported in the US. They join the likes of AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon which is pretty much all the major carriers, as well as US Cellular. We expect that over time there will be more carriers added to the list in the US, but for now there will be six that are currently supported.

In addition to the US, Google Play Store carrier billing has also expanded its support to other carriers around the world. For our non-US readers, this includes Vodafone in Indonesia, Beeline for those living in Kazakhstan, Orange for our readers in Luxembourg, Telenor Pakistan, Telekom in Slovenia, and Vietnamobile and Viettel for Vietnam.

While this is great for bill consolidation, it also comes in handy for those who prefer to avoid using their debit/credit cards, or for those who do not own one.
