Ooredoo today announced the launch of a Direct Carrier Billing service with Google, to make it easier for Android users to purchase apps, games, and digital content on their devices.

With the introduction of Direct Carrier Billing with Google, customers can now perform any online purchase transaction through the Google Play Store, by paying for their purchases via their mobile phone balance without the need of using their credit cards. Direct Carrier Billing allows users of select mobile operators to pay for digital content on Google Play by billing purchases to their mobile accounts; post-paid or prepaid. Once the payment option is set-up, customers are able to charge application and content purchases from the Play Store directly to their mobile accounts.

The Google Play store is the official application store for Android smartphones and tablets. Google makes software applications, music, movies and books available for purchase and download through the store. The Google Play store, which comes pre-installed on Android devices, allows users to purchase, download and install applications from Google and third-party developers.
