Google announced that it is going to bring its rewards program for Google Play in the US.

After a successful run in Japan and South Korea, Google Play's Points rewards program is coming to the west. Google announced today that its free loyalty program will roll out to devices in the United States over the coming week. When you buy apps, in-app items, movies, books, subscriptions and so on, you'll be awarded points.

There are four different Tiers within the Play Points program. Those options may seem limited at first, but if you pump your points into Google Play Store cash, you can grab virtually anything on the platform.

Aside from unlocking new reward ranks, your Play Points can be redeemed for in-game or in-app purchases or Google Play Credit. When you are at a higher level, you can get weekly prizes. All you have to do to sign up is go to the Play Store app on your Android device, tap menu, and then tap Play Points. Points levels range from Bronze to Platinum.

But if you want to use your points for a more honorable cause, you can also use it to help support causes from a list of nonprofits that they will keep changing.

Each tier offers increased points earnings for every dollar a user spends.

Google is also allowing redemption of Play Points against a social cause.

Today in "it's always a good idea to update your devices", a recently discovered loophole in Android's NFC-based file-sharing feature, Android Beam, makes it possible for someone to install an app on your device. In that case, there will be no effect on the revenue of the developers. Further investigation by Secure-D, revealed that the keyboard app was also sending invisible ads and non-human clicks to the users.

Aside from the fact that Google patched this vulnerability last month, there are other reasons that this doesn't sit anywhere near the most unsafe threats facing your devices today.
