Google recently updated its Play Store with a fresh feature that allows you set a budget every month to assist in keeping your application and digital media purchases in check.
It is not error–free, the tool only reveals a notification above the “buy” button to allow you realize when you cross your limit, rather than blocking your purchase totally or even letting you opt for it.
But still, it can be of use to those that frequently churn out cash in Google’s store plus it caters for not only apps, but books, films, songs as well. This is how you can use it on your Android phone.

- If what you are buying in the store is beginning to go above your budget, you will get notified on top of the “1-tap buy” pop-up. You are able to, definitely, shun it and keep buying stuff.
