The moment that many Google Play customers have been waiting for is here, as Google finally makes the Store’s gift cards official. The support page for the vouchers, which has just gone live, reveals more information that will please those in the U.S., but disappoint many outside the country.
Google Play voucher redeemed ahead of official release
Folks from Target were able to successfully redeem a $25 Google Play gift card ahead of the official launch. Some trickery was naturally involved in the redeeming process, given that it isn’t supposed to go live yet.
Gift cards and wish lists are almost certainly coming to Google Play
Buying for apps and other content on Google Play isn’t the easiest thing to do for folks who don’t have credit cards or simply don’t want to whip them out to buy games and apps -- among other things. The same plight is faced by non-US customers whose payment option is even more severely limited. It looks Google is ready to give customers what they really, really want: the ability to use gift cards to make Google Play purchase.
