Google Play Celebrates Its First Birthday With A Week Of Discounts & Special Offers


It’s been one whole year since Google rebranded the Android Market to Google Play, rolling apps, books, movies, and music into one. And to celebrate, the company is offering customers discounts, special offers, and exclusive in-game content for a week.

The deals you receive will vary depending on the country and the region you’re in, but some of the offers include free books and music downloads, discounted movies and TV shows, and exclusive Android-themed add-ons for popular apps and games.

In the U.S. and the U.K., for example, Google has featured three games — Gnome Village, Royal Revolt, and Yumby Smash — which offer free additional levels, discounts on in-app purchases, and exclusive characters to unlock. U.S. users will also enjoy 10% off in the app, and a free $15 gift card for Fancy.

Google currently has 11 items on offer in the U.S., according to Android Central, and 15 on offer in the U.K. However, these offers are expected to change over the course of the next week, so be sure to check back every day to see what’s new.

Happy Birthday, Google Play!
