Carrier billing is nothing new to Android, with AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile all allowing customers to buy apps in Google Play and and charge the purchase to their monthly phone bill. Google today announced that it's taking things a step further, though, and allowing customers to purchase music, movies and books and then charge them to their bill as well. However, this ability is currently only open to T-Mobile customers here in the U.S., but Google does say that Sprint will be gaining the expanded direct billing feature soon.

Having the option to charge your app purchases to your monthly phone bill is pretty convenient, and it's good to see that Android users (at least those on T-Mobile) can now buy other digital content in Google Play using the same method. Google made no mention of when or if AT&T will also offer the new billing option, but since the carrier already allows apps to be billed to a customer's monthly statement, here's to hoping that AT&T support is coming. How many of you have ever charged an app purchase to your monthly bill?
