Did you notice that Google Play launched a pretty cool feature for its users very recently? This newly launched feature allows Google Play users, more specifically android users, send Google Play credit to someone else through email as gift.
Google Play started this amazing feature from November 25, and it’s already been very promising to Play users. With this feature, any android user can now send his Google Play credit to someone else as gift via email. Right now, users are allowed to send either $10, $15, $20, $25, $50 and even $100. Surprisingly, there’s actually no limit on how many credits a Play user would like to send to anyone.
If you are also an android user, you will see an option as ‘Send Gift’ on the sidebar of Google Play Store now, which doesn’t mean you can send chocolates or cards as gift to your intended recipients. Actually you can send Google Play credit to your friends and others as gift with this newly added option. You just need to enter your recipient’s email address and a short note to them; otherwise they might think it was a scam or virus.
Users are required to pay for the credit through their debit/credit cards which are connected with their Google Play accounts. Besides, payment using Google Wallet is also accepted. Note that users are not allowed to pay for their credit using their Google Play balance for now.
Currently this feature is only limited to US market. Though no word yet but hopefully this feature will be rolling out to more countries very soon.
