Netflix To Allow Subscriptions To Be Paid Through Google Play Soon
One of the biggest downsides to any subscription service is keeping track of it. Once you’ve subscribed to 3, 4, 5 different services, you might forget about which card they’re attached. I know personally I’ve found out that I was mistakenly subscribed to a service, and ironically in this case, it was Netflix. Today through their Android app listing, Netflix announced that they would soon be adding Google Play billing to the app to allow customers to manage their subscription through Google Play.
The feature isn’t live yet, but the latest update will ask for permission to enable “in-app billing” which will soon enable the subscription. It’s unclear if the change will come via a server-side update or through another app update, but we’ll just have to stay tuned. for now.
