Google Play gift cards will not be available in Australia at first
After reporting this morning that the Google Play gift cards are on the horizon, I was a bit anxious as to whether we’d be seeing them in Australia. After some more great work by the guys over at Android Police I was able to do some Australian recon work. I checked whether the updated Google Play Store is able to access the redeem page, which Americans have had no problems with.
Lo and behold, just as I had feared – it looks like the Google Play Store in Australia will not be giving access to gift cards, yet. What you see on the right is the page displayed when attempting to access the store from Australia.
Oh Google, why must you always leave us out with all the goodies.
There may be a work-around when the service actually launches officially by Google. Or, Google will be nice enough to give us the gift cards themselves. Either way, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one and try get access to Google Play gift-cards down under.
