For the vacations this 12 months, the corporate is again at it once more with a collection of post-transaction vignettes for us customers to get pleasure from.

Particularly, these animations happen as soon as a sale is full and a affirmation checkmark in a blue circle seems.


In our useless makes an attempt to try to seize as many animations as potential with out spending an excessive amount of cash, we solely had been in a position to file considered one of them: it was the checkmark ball turning into a beautiful wintry nighttime scene in a snowglobe. We additionally noticed, however did not seize an animation centered round a snowman.

Not each buy you make with Google Pockets will flip up an animation, particularly for those who’re making back-to-back purchases. It is also fairly straightforward to overlook them for those who faucet or swipe out of the animation.
