Google had announced last month that billing for the subscription of Google Drive storage will soon be moved to the Play Store. A report by AndroidPolice now confirms that some subscribers of Google Drive are now getting billed on their Google Play account page.

Essentially, Google wants to move all of its paid services under one roof, which is the Google Play Store. It actually makes sense as the process becomes more streamlined and information is easier to access. Apart from the billing migration, there will be no prominent changes to Google Drive. The new billing system will however let users use their Google Play credit to buy Google Drive storage. In case you haven't been moved, you should wait as the changes are being made this month.

To check your Google Drive subscription in Google Play Store, just open the options, hit Account and then enter the Subscriptions tab.

A couple of days ago we heard Google expanding the carrier billing option to Airtel and Vodafone postpaid customers. While the addition of the new method was officially announced in October at the Google Playtime event in India, the rollout began over the past couple of weeks. Carrier billing payment allows a user to buy apps, music, books and movies from the Google Play Store while the cost is reflected in the user’s mobile postpaid bill. This feature has been available for Android users in a number of countries, however this feature was finally brought to India last year.
