Google Play Store makes it easier to donate to charitable institutions

Just in time for the Holiday gift-giving, Google is making it easier and faster to donate to non-profit institutions of your choice via the Google Play Store. Google said that this feature will be available over the next few days for Android users in the U.S. Canada, Mexico, Germany, Great Britain, France, Italy, Spain, Taiwan and Indonesia.

To start donating, head over to play.google.com/donate using your Android devices. This will open the Play Store and load a special Google Play collection. This include charities that specialise on disaster relief, medical care, clean water and gender gap in technology. Tap the “Donate now” button and choose the amount that you want to donate.

Google said that 100% of the donations goes to your chosen recipient. Google does not get any commission or charges you for it.
