If you love the freebies offered by your favourite store, this could be of interest to you. Google has introduced a ‘Free” scheme for Android phone users by permitting them to download one paid app per week without having to pay anything.
This is available from the Play Store on your Android phone. Users can easily locate the app being offered by clicking on the ‘Free App of the Week’ that appears on the Play Store.
The app could cost any amount. According to this report, the app last week was 'Ultimate Guitar Tabs & Chords' costing just Rs.10/- in India while this week, it is 'Card Wars - Adventure Time', which is priced at Rs.200/-.
So, try your luck and choose the app you have wanted to download and install but were hesitant to do for different reasons. This could be the ideal time to enjoy using the app.
With this new weekly offer, Google is looking at a win-win situation where it is not only promoting the app but also allowing users to use them for free.
This is not the first time that Google has made an attempt like this, to lure its Android user community; a similar feature was brought out a couple of years back but withdrawn later. Users have to avail such offers when they are offered.
The report also says that Google is trying to reach out to countries which have poor network connectivity. Accordingly, it has rolled out an update for its Google Photos app as well its Duo and Allo apps.
