It seems that among the news that the Google team is planning to introduce there is also one concerning the Google Play Store and, more specifically, the Play Points rewards program. At the moment this novelty has not been released globally and should only be available to a limited circle of users, probably as part of a test program.
Important news for the points of the Google Play Store
According to what is learned, the Mountain View giant would have decided to allow users to redeem Play Points to buy devices on the Google Store, including smartphones from the Google Pixel series and devices from the Nest range.
We remind you that the Play Points rewards system was introduced in 2019 in some markets to “retain” users and encourage them to make purchases: as you spend money on applications or other multimedia content, in fact, you earn points that can then be used as credit to make in-app purchases in games or to obtain other content.
At the moment the possibility of using Play Points on the Google Store seems to be available only in the United States and there are 4 discount levels to choose from (ie 10 dollars, 50 dollars, 100 dollars and 200 dollars), each of which can be redeemed only once.
Obviously, these discounts cannot be accumulated to obtain greater savings and must be used within 30 days from when they are requested, as they expire after this deadline. For this initiative, the Google Store offers 1 dollar for every 50 Play Points (on the Google Play Store the conversion rate is 1 dollar for every 100 points) and the Mountain View giant currently plans to keep it active until November 30th.
We look forward to official information from Google to find out if it will also be extended to other countries.
