Net banking these days is the most efficiently used payment option by individuals as well as businesses as it makes money transfer more easier as compared to other modes of payment. And, on seeing this increasing trend of net banking, Google has started adding yet another payment option to its Play Store users in form of Net Banking.
The company is rolling out net banking as a payment option for apps, music, movies, books, etc. on the Google Play marketplace in India.
Before this net banking payment method, there were already three payment options available in the Play Store; credit cards, debit cards, and gift cards. And the net banking will be the fourth payment option on the Google Play store.
Rolling Out Slowly, Irrespective of Android Version
The net banking payment mode isn’t now available for all Android users. Google is rolling out this service slowly to different versions of the Android operating system.
Another great thing is that this new payment feature is being added irrespective of the version of Android or the Google Play app. So, all you need to just wait for this update on your Android phone.
