Google Play Points is the new rewards program recently launched by Google for Android users in the US. It allows you to earn points for everything you do in the Google Play Store. From downloading new apps to subscribing to the services of buying movies, books and books, and much more. Users can use the points earned in the program to buy characters, gems and other items in other apps.
Google introduced Google Play Points in Japan on September 2018. It was also launched in South Korea in April 2019. Google says millions of people have joined the program, and this success has prompted the company to launch Play Points in the US market.
How to Earn Google Play Points
As we mentioned above, you earn points for everything you buy on Google Play, including apps, movies, books, subscriptions and more. You can also earn Play Points by downloading free apps and games. Weekly points activities can increase your earning potential in movies, books and some games.
