Google's Play Billing Library 3 is out - is everything new and different again?

Kai Koenig

Software Solutions Architect

Over the last two years, Google has released multiple new versions of Google Play Billing Library, also known as BillingClient.

We're now in the 3.x line of library releases and quite a lot of things have changed again - both on the side of your Android application as well as on a backend flow implementation.

There is now a need to acknowledge payments and a flurry of new subscription features like restore and hold. But how many of all these new features are really required and have to be supported by your app?

Before you spend weeks on potentially unnecessary work, this session will provide you with a quick and easy way to catch up. If you have been working with GPBL 1.x or 2.x for a while and want to upgrade, this is the place to be.

I am a Software Solutions Architect specialised in web and mobile technologies using client-side platforms such as mobile web, Flutter and Android.

Another focus of my work is building and the integration with JVM-backend platforms such as Java, Kotlin, CFML, Lucee and others like Go and Python. I spend most of my work time contributing to projects of various clients and sizes, fulfilling the role of an architect, principal developer, consultant or mentor/instructor.
