Google today announced a commercial match service that will allow users to buy and sell tickets for its Google Play app and Google Play Music app through Google Play and Google Music.
The match service is available to Android users who use the Google Play App on iOS devices.
“We have been working on commercial match for years, and we’re excited to bring it to Android, too,” Google Play Product Manager, Pauline Boulanger said in a statement.
“We think this will be a fantastic way to get in touch with your friends and family, and also to build more connections and create more business for you and your business.”
In order to offer the commercial match feature, Google will begin selling tickets in batches for Android users in the first week of July, Boulangers statement said.
The match service will be available to anyone with a Google Play account, including Google Play subscribers, who have purchased tickets for the Google Store app and have also downloaded the Google Maps app, Google Play Movies and Music app, and the Google Chrome Web Store app.
Tickets will be priced based on the number of tickets in a user’s hands, but users can also request to sell their tickets for a price they think they can afford.
If the price they’re willing to pay is higher than what the user would be willing to sell for, they can request to buy tickets at a discount.
If users are interested in selling tickets, they’ll have to do so on Google Play or on their own, or they can choose to purchase them directly from Google.
Google has been adding support for the commercial service to its app in recent weeks, and will now be adding support to the Google app for iOS as well.
The commercial match services are available for all users, regardless of their devices or operating systems, and can be used to sell tickets in advance for $1.99 per ticket.
They’ll be available for purchase through Google and Google’s Google Play apps.
The commercial match will be added to the App Store, as well, in the coming weeks.
