Boku brings carrier billing to Windows 10 with Canadian MNO

Telus, one of Canada's largest mobile carriers, has launched a new integration with Microsoft to bring carrier billing to Windows 10 users throughout Canada thanks to a partnership with Boku, according to a company announcement.

As part of the integration with Boku, Windows 10 customers on Telus will be able to use their mobile phone number to save their mobile account as their preferred payment method when making any purchase, whether on a PC, laptop, tablet or Xbox gaming console.

This integration is a first for Microsoft in Canada and will bring this payment method to over 8.5 million Telus subscribers, according to the announcement.

With the launch of Telus Canada, Boku now provides carrier billing services to Microsoft customers in 10 markets, with more to come in the near future, the company said.
