Google's Play Live event brings several deals users can take advantage of in their favorite games and apps. However, in the coming weeks, Platinum members will be able to use their Play Points toward Walmart Plus, DoorDash, and Discord offers.
Those passing the time with Candy Crush Saga can start receiving 2x added value on select rewards such as in-game currency, boosters, and semi-durable items. RAID: Shadow Legends is offering 50% more materials and essential resources to summon and upgrade new heroes through the Shard Triple Pack for a limited time.
Gardenscapes is offering a discount of up to 80% on "special events." Google states that during the event, users can choose between two bundles to quickly level up. These bundles offer worthwhile in-game items like coins, boosters, extra lives, and free event tickets.
Bumble's offer involves an extended Spotlight special, giving users an hour to find a new favorite person or a friend. Duolingo, on the other hand, is offering users a one-month free trial to "Super Duolingo."
Every offer and all of the rewards are available to claim from August 31 to September 6. Those looking to participate in the deals and events can do so within the respective apps or through the Google Play Store.
Much like last year's Google Play Live, those tuning into the live stream could engage with some of the most well-known content creators and play their favorite games. Additionally, the deals and in-game rewards Google has revealed are a part of its Labor Day Deals Week — where more is likely in store.
