Xbox One and Xbox One S to support carrier billing


Microsoft has just announced that company will be bringing carrier billing support over to Xbox one and Xbox one S. Now Xbox One owners will be able to purchase Music, TV shows and movies, Games and Apps directly through the Windows Store and pay for it using carrier billing.

Being a new feature, only select carriers support this for now. Beeline (Russia), DNA and Elisa (Finland), O2 (Germany & UK), Swisscom (Switzerland) and Telenor (Norway, Sweden& Hungary) are the carriers that support carrier billing as of now. Microsoft is working with other companys to bring this feature to more carriers.

Carrier billing is present as a method of payment when anything is bought from store. The buyer has to enter a verfication code on the Xbox recieved by him on his phone, and the transaction is completed.

Carrier billing is something that has been present on Windows mobile for long. It would certainly be useful for people who don’t like to have multiple payment methods, or for those who would like their bill be collected by their carrier.
