It’s hard to believe, but it’s been a year since Google Play was launched. To honor the occasion, Google is offering all kinds of deals and freebies, which include apps, movies, music, and more. Technically, most of the services in Google Play have been around for longer than a year, but it’s been exactly 12 months since Google unified everything under the Google Play name.
According to Google Play’s website, “the best parties are the ones that send you home with a present, today we celebrate our birthday with a festive goodie bag full of gifts“. In that spirit, Google is offering free music tracks from The Velvet Underground and LCD Soundsystem, free apps, discounts with Hotels.com, $.99 movie rentals, the first episode of Breaking bad for free, and other goodies.
Android gamers will enjoy plenty of exclusive stuff for Google Play games such as special locations in Gnome Village, deals on in-app purchases in Royal Revolt, and a special Android character in Yumby Smash. For book lovers, Google is offering a free copy of Morgan Rice’s A Quest of Heroes., the first book from The Sorcerers Ring series. If you are looking to dive headfirst into a new series of fantasy books, this might be the perfect time to get started.
These deals will carry on for another few days, so you have time to take advantage of them. However, not all of the deals are available in all areas. Some discounts, such as ones on movies, books, and music, will be available only where these services are offered by Google, so make sure you know exactly what deals you can get to avoid disappointment.
What’s the best deal you managed to find?
