Earlier today, the folks over at AndroidPolice got their hands on a new version of the Play Store APK. The new version only had slight visual changes, but even then was heavier by more than 300KB compared to previous versions. This got Artem intrigued, and with a bit of detective work from him, he has uncovered one of the most requested feature in Play Store – Gift Cards.
It looks like Google is finally ready to release Play Store redeemable gift cards. Some developers have even compiled the hacked APK to get to the Redeemable gift card screen. In addition to the Gift card option, it looks like Google is also working on bringing Wishlist to the Play Store.
Redeemable gift cards has been one of the most requested feature from Android users, and it looks like Google is finally ready to bring it to the Play Store. Redeemable gift cards should help lower the piracy rate in the Android ecosystem and bring in more customers. I only hope that Google does not keep this feature U.S only, and leave Android users in other part of the world in the dark.
