The Google Play Points program is coming to India: Here’s a deeper look at how it works

The Google Play Store is the most popular application store in the world. And it’s not just a place where you can find your favorite apps, but a one-stop destination for all your media needs – games, movies, e-books, and more. While most of the ads on the store are free, there are plenty of other more premium options you can download for a price. But did you know that in addition to granting access to more premium apps, making purchases also rewards you with other things? Yes, Google announced on Tuesday that its global rewards program will be rolling out to users in India “in the coming week.” Before that happens, here’s everything you need to know to get ready to use the program to the fullest.

Google Play Points is the program that helps users earn points and rewards for purchases they make on the Play Store. These purchases range from apps and games to in-app items and subscriptions. Your rewards also increase based on the tier you’re in – the more you spend on purchases, the more points you earn, and the higher your tier increases.

You start at the Bronze level where you are rewarded with 1 point for every dollar spent. Once you’ve earned 150 points, you move up to the Silver level which increases your rewards to 1.1 points per dollar spent. Gold boosts it to 1.2 points per dollar once you reach 600 points, while you max out the Platinum level with 3,000 points and above with its 1.4 point per dollar advantage. However, Google has not yet specified how the points will work for Indian rupees. You also get better extra perks based on your levels, such as in-game point events, book multipliers, weekly platinum prizes, and premium support.

However, considering the fact that apps and games on the Play Store are usually much cheaper than when bought with dollars, it is quite possible that it takes less to earn more points in India. This is just speculation, however, as Google has yet to provide information on the points per rupee spent in India.

How to register ?

To sign up for the program, you’ll need to open the Play Store, tap the profile icon in the top right, and then tap Play Points. You’ll earn five times more Play Points in your first week, so if you’re looking to buy something from the Play Store, you know a good time to do so.

Remember that Play Points will only apply to in-app purchases made through the Google Play Store.

Once you’ve collected points, you can redeem them for Google Play credit to use however you see fit on the Play Store. It doesn’t stop there, though – you can also spend them on special in-app items or coupons to buy in-app or in-game items at a discounted price.

Google in India has partnered with over 30 titles, including games from global studios such as 8 Ball Pool and Evony: The King’s Return. Then there are games from local studios such as Ludo King), Word Trip and Ludo Star. The list also includes popular apps such as Truecaller and Wysa.

Of course, Google will expand the program to partner with more developers and offer an even larger collection of items that can be purchased from within an app or game.
