Two days back, we had reported that the latest version of the Google Play Store app was up for grabs. The new version was simple yet elegant and sorted all the content in a card style layout grouping all the related stuff together in a box. And as the current update was after almost a year (last major update was in July), it was quite natural that the company would be celebrating their newest play store version 4.0.

The campaign urges users post their favorite thing about the google play store. This can be anything from music, movies, ebooks to any other app found on the play store. All you have to do is tweet @Google Play using the hash tag #favoritethings . One last thing, you will have to make an entry of your tweet on the entry form tweeted by Google play account to be eligible in the contest. It is as simple as that and you can be one of the lucky winners who will win a nexus device. The lucky winners are given a chance to win 10 Nexus 10 devices, 7 Nexus 7 devices and 4 Nexus 4 devices. Moreover, 100 lucky winners will get a $10 Google Play gift card which can be used to purchase any item on the store.

The exact details of making an entry into the contest are as given below:

  1. Be a United States resident at least 18 years old
  2. Follow @Google Play
  3. Tweet one of your “Favorite Things” @Google Play using hashtag #favoritethings and include the link to the item on Google Play. This can be a movie, music, book, app, game, magazine or TV show. Here’s an example: My favorite movie on @GooglePlay is Toy Story #favoritethings
  4. Complete the entry form given in this link.

Google had already given discounts to its users a month back when the Play Store turned one. This would be yet another chance for users to get some freebies on the play store.

The contest is on till April 24th midnight and hence make sure that you enter your tweet in the contest before the closing date.
