    As of now, the Google support page for payments does not reflect Vodafone and Airtel as supported carriers but Idea is on the list. Well, this feature is live for select users at the moment. On the other hand, it will be rolled out in phases to all compatible users. Basically, only postpaid users are seeing this feature, and there is no information on when prepaid users will start receiving it.

    For direct carrier billing to work smoothly, users need to check with their carrier to make sure they haven't exceeded their monthly spending limit. Also, users need to ensure that their service plans allow premium content purchases.
