Indian Android app developer may have prepaid app subscription on Google Play

Google has introduced new pre-paid app subscription capabilities and other changes for Android app developers in emerging markets, including India, to help them generate more revenue.

The tech giant said it would allow developers to offer users the ability to subscribe through prepaid plans that provide access to the app and its services for a certain period of time.

They may also offer an option for users who aren’t ready to purchase an auto-renewing subscription, the company said during its annual Google I/O developer conference.

Developers can reduce prices to as low as 5 US cents which will allow them to run local sales and promotions and support in-app tipping.
