Google has introduced Google Play prepaid vouchers for the Indian market. The Google Play prepaid vouchers, also known as Google Play Gift Cards elsewhere in the world, can be used to purchase digital content such as apps, games, in-app purchases, and ebooks, apart from rent or buy movies on the Google Play store.
Google Play Prepaid Vouchers in India
The Google Play prepaid vouchers will be available in three options: Rs. 500, Rs. 1,000, and Rs. 1,500. The company has announced that over the coming weeks prepaid vouchers will be available at select Vijay Sales and Spice Hotspot stores in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata, and Jaipur. Redemption begins from Tuesday however.
The prepaid vouchers or gift cards were introduced in the US back in 2012, and have since seen a slow rollout across the world. Their entry into India is very welcome, as apart from easily gifting friends and family Google Play store credit, users will no longer have to rely on electronic payment to make Google Play purchases or rentals – and can instead use cash at the stores that sell the vouchers.
User can redeem the Google Play prepaid voucher by entering the gift card code on play.google.com/redeem page, or on their Android device via the Google Play app, via the Redeem option
