Google has officially launched gift cards for their Android Store — Google Play. So, next time when you are confused about what to gift your tech-savvy friend, you can gift a Google Play Gift Card! The gift cards are available in the denominations of $10, $15, $25 and $50. As of now, the cards are only available in the U.S., through select retailers like RadioShack, Target and GameStop. The Google Play Gift Card lets you purchase music, movies, apps and books from the Google Play Store.
The gift card amount needs to be added to your Google Wallet account, and then used for in-store purchasing. However, when shopping with a Google Play Gift Card, you don’t need a Credit Card. You can purchase music from a huge collection of songs, favorite movies and TV shows, eBooks and much more. What’s more, you get instant access to these files as soon as you purchase them. You also get to purchase any of the Android apps and games. The gift card is also valid for in-app purchases like extra-levels, add-on packs and virtual currency.
