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

The Google Play Store is the most popular app store in the world. And it’s not just a place to find your favorite apps, it’s a one-stop shop for all your media needs – games, movies, e-books, whatever you want. While most listings on the store are free, there are many other premium options that you can download for a price. But did you know that besides access to more premium apps, you’ll also be rewarded with other things when you make purchases? Yes, Google announced on Tuesday that its global rewards program will be rolling out “in the coming week” to users in India. Before that happens, here’s everything you need to know to prepare yourself to take full advantage of the program.

Google Play Points is the program that allows users to earn points and rewards for purchases from 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 at – the more you spend on purchases, the more points you earn and the higher your tier climbs.

You start out at the Bronze level, where you are rewarded with 1 point for every dollar spent. Once you’ve earned 150 points, move up to the Silver tier, which increases your rewards to 1.1 points per dollar spent. Gold increases this to 1.2 points per dollar once you reach 600 points, while Platinum maxes you out at 3,000 points and above with its 1.4 points per dollar advantage. However, Google has yet to figure out how points work for Indian rupees. You’ll also get better additional benefits based on your level, like in-game point events, book multipliers, weekly platinum prizes, and premium support.

Considering that apps and games are usually a lot cheaper on the Play Store than buying them in dollars, it’s entirely possible that it takes less to earn more points in India. However, this is just speculation as Google is yet to provide information on points per rupee spent in India.

How do I log on?

To sign up for the program, you need to open the Play Store, tap the profile icon at the top right, and then tap Play Points. You get 5x the Play Points in your first week. So when you want to buy something from the Play Store, you’ll know exactly when it’s time.

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

Once you’ve built up a fine collection of points, you can redeem them for Google Play credit to use however you like on the Play Store. But that’s not all – 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 more than 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 like Ludo King, Word Trip and Ludo Star. The list also includes popular apps like Truecaller and Wysa.

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