Since 2012, Google Play has been a destination to find the best of apps, games, and digital content, and we are always looking for new ways to enable people to enjoy these digital experiences.
One way we have been doing this is through our global rewards program - Google Play Points - that has been helping users earn points and rewards for the many ways they use Google Play. Over the past years, we have expanded Google Play Points to 28 countries and we’re thrilled to see more than 100 million people find value in the program.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re bringing Google Play Points to India. It will be rolled out to users in India in the coming week.
Play your way and earn points
Users will be able to earn points when they make purchases using Google Play's billing system, including in-app items, apps, games, and subscriptions. The rewards program has four levels — Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum – that provide members with different perks and prizes depending on the tier they are in, which is based on the number of points they have collected.
Redeem your Play Points how you’d like
Users can redeem their points for Google Play Credit to use how they’d like to on the store.
We have also partnered with developers of popular apps and games across the world to help users redeem their points for special in-app items. In India, we are partnering with 30+ participating titles that include:
- Games from global studios such as Miniclip (8 Ball Pool), TG INC (Evony: The King’s return).
- Games from local studios such as Gametion (Ludo King), Playsimple Games (Word Trip), and Gameberry Labs (Ludo Star).
- Popular apps such as Truecaller and Wysa.
We look forward to expanding the program to more global and local developers in the future.
Growth avenue for local developers
We are committed to building products and programs that the Play community - both users and developers - find value in. Google Play Points will also provide local developers a new avenue to build a local and global user base; helping them engage their users, drive discovery, and acquire users across markets that have Google Play Points.
