What Are Google Play Points, and How To Use Them?

Listen to this article

Google Points rewards program that lets you earn and rewards for the ways you already use Google Play. You can use Play Points for special items and discounts in top games like Candy Crush Saga and Pokémon GO, or for Google Play Credit to use on movies, books, games, and apps.

Google Play Points don’t last forever. They expire one year after the last activity. That means they will only expire if you go an entire year without earning points or using your points.

Also, the levels are not permanent. For example, if you earn 600 points in a year and get bumped up to “Silver,” you will be at that level for one year. At the end of the year, your new points balance will determine the level for the next year. You’ll need 600+ points again to stay in “Silver.”

How Do I Use Play Points?

Google Play Points can be used in a number of different ways. To get started, open the Play Store on your Android device and tap the hamburger menu icon in the top-left corner.

Select “Play Points” from the menu.

Next, open the “Use” tab.

For starters, Play Points can be used to purchase Google Play Credit, which you can use to make purchases on apps, movies, books, and anything else in the Play Store.

The second way to use Play Points is towards in-app purchases. Under the “Google Play Credit” section, you’ll see a long list of apps and games that support Play Points.

Lastly, Play Points can be put toward charities. On the bottom of the “Earn” tab is a list of causes to support. When you put Play Points towards these causes, you’re returning the points to Google and it will then give the dollar amount to the organization.

Play Points are an easy way to earn rewards for using the Google Play Store like you normally would. If you make a lot of purchases in the Play Store, this is a good program to join.
