Google had introduced Google Play prepaid vouchers in June this year. Now the company has announced wider availability of the vouchers via physical retail outlets across the country. These Gift Cards will be available in three variations: Rs 750, Rs 1,000 and Rs 1,500.
These gift cards will be available via retail stores such as Spice Hotspot, Vijay Sales, Planet M, Planet Mobile and Sangeetha Mobiles. In addition, the cards can also be purchased online on Snapdeal.com as COD (cash on delivery) shipments.
With the new prepaid vouchers by Google, one can purchase content such as apps, games, e-books and more via the Play Store. In addition, users can redeem Google Play prepaid vouchers by entering in gift card codes on the Redeem page or via, the Android app as well.
Over the years, Google has tweaked its apps store including a name change from Android app store to Play Store. In May, the company introduced a new and interesting feature which lets users ‘pre-register’ for apps in Google Play Store. Pre-registration is free for Android customers and allows them to receive notifications when the app or game is available for download or for purchase on the store.
Commenting on the availability, Saurabh Agarwal, Head of Retail Partnerships – Google Play, India said in an official blog post, “We hope the increased availability of Google Play Gift Cards will make it easier for users to enjoy your favourite movies, books, magazines, apps, and games across all your devices. Users in India can buy games like Prince of Persia at Rs. 10 or get big discounts on movies like The Great Gatsby or Sherlock Holmes during this promotion.”
