Google is now introducing an option to make donations through the Play Store.
Google announced in a recent blog that this feature is currently being rolled out to Play Store users only in the US, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Great Britain, France, Spain, Italy, Taiwan and Indonesia. Users in these regions will start to see this feature over the next few days.
Google has set up a dedicated landing page for the feature, where you can donate to a bunch of non-profit organisations. For users in India, sadly, the feature isn’t available yet.
Google has currently partnered with ten organisations to begin with. These include the American Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders USA, Girls Who Code, UNICEF, World Food Program USA, and Save the Children. Google plans to add more organisations to this list in the future and make the feature available to users in more countries.
If you are in any of the countries mentioned above, you can head here on your Android phone, and choose any organisation to learn more about them and donate to support its work. Google said that it won’t take any cut from the payments, which means 100 percent of your donations will go to the charity of your choice.
“We’re inspired by the many ways that the Play community shares resources, supports each other and creates positive change. We hope this update offers a way to help other communities outside of our own in need,” Maxim Mai, Business Development Manager, Google Play wrote in the blog.
