Google allows Spotify its own in-app payment option

Alphabet Inc.’s Google said Wednesday it will allow Spotify to use its payment system in its Android app as part of a new pilot.

Users who have downloaded Spotify from the Google Play Store will be given the option to pay with Spotify’s payment system or Google Play billing.

The pilot will allow a small number of participating developers, starting with Spotify, to offer an additional third party billing option next to Google Play’s billing system in their apps.
