Google has launched its global rewards program- Google Play Points in India. This program will reward users with points for making in-app purchases using Play Store billing. These purchases can be apps, games, movies, and even eBooks.
The search giant announced the rollout of Google Play Points in India via a blog post on Tuesday. This program is already available in 28 Countries. Under this program, users have the chance to earn points for every action they do on the Google Play marketplace, from downloading new apps to subscribing to services, books, and more.
The rewards program will also have four levels – Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. The prizes and perks are different for each tier. In the end, it will determine how many points have you collected. Note that Play Points will only be applicable to in-app purchases made via the Google Play Store.
Google is partnering with many apps and game developers that will help them enable redeeming the points easier. Google has partnered with more than 30 players including game titles like 8 Ball Pool, Evony: The King’s return, Ludo King, and Ludo Star, along with apps like Truecaller and Wysa. Furthermore, users can redeem their points for Google Play credit.
The program is currently available in 28 countries and Google claims that more than 100 users have used it.
How to join the Google Play Points rewards program
The Play Points program is set to come to Android users in India in the following week. The rewards program can be joined for free by opening the Google Play Store app on any Android phone and navigating to your Profile by clicking on your profile icon on the top-right and choosing Play Points. Users will also earn five times the Play Points in their first week.
Google foots the bill for the whole Play Points program. You may rent the newest movie, purchase an audiobook, or renew your Google cloud membership using the points you earn, in addition to other perks given by the producers of the apps you use.
Google Play Points was first launched in Japan in September 2018 to encourage users to buy more through the Play Store. It was later unveiled in South Korea and the US in 2019. In selected countries, Google Play Points can be redeemed to rent a movie or buy an audiobook. In the US, points can be used to support a charitable cause.
