Google has just made it possible to pay for Spotify Premium outside of the Play Store

Google is expanding its pilot User Choice Billing (UCB) program with Spotify among the first participants. It now officially allows customers of the music platform to set up service payments outside of the Google Play Store.

Back in March, Google partnered with Spotify to launch the program by giving users the ability to use different payment options. UCB was initially available to users in Japan, Australia and several European countries. It is now coming to the United States, Brazil and South Africa after Google acquired one “positive response and [feedback]» from the first round (opens in new tab). In the coming weeks, Spotify will make the third-party payment option available to Android users only, so they can choose how they want to pay for a Premium subscription.
