Buy credits for Google Play from your browser

Consumers can now top off their Google Play credits with a handful of denominations without leaving their browsers.

Users can top off their Google Play credit lines directly from the Web. Google

Google has added a feature that lets Google Play users top off their credit by simply visiting the Web version of the storefront. The move comes on the heels of the recent introduction of physical gift cards in various retail stores.

Scrolling to the bottom of the Google Play store, you can now click on a link that allows for credit refills in various denominations. It's possible to purchase credit in increments of $5, $10, $15, $25, and $50.

As of now, it's only possible to add to your own account, though I suspect we'll see gifting at some point. Also, the new redemption method appears to be limited to the U.S. market only.
