Americans were the first to get their hands on gift cards for the Google Play Store, but it wasn’t long before we were joined by our friends across the pond. Now, our friends up north might be getting some gift card love. Silent upgrades to the Google Play Store for phones in that region seem to be enabling the ability to redeem gift cards.

Nothing is appearing in shops just yet, but if we’re going based on rollouts for other regions Google typically upgrades the Play Store a few days to a week before rolling them out to retail. If you’re in Canada be sure to check your Play Store to see if this has popped up for you yet, and keep an eye out for the cards at your favorite electronics shops and other retail stores over the coming days.
