The “Google Play Elves” bring deals on apps, movies, music and more to Play Store

We started off the week telling you about Apple’s 12 Days of Gifts, a holiday-themed giveaway offering users all sorts of downloads as we start moving into 2014. Google already started getting into the season with some Nexus 7 deals, but now it’s turning its attention to downloads, as well, laying out a holiday spread full of apps, books, movies, and more.

Unlike Apple, only giving users one option a day, these Google deals land all at once, ready for you to take advantage of as many (or few) as you so choose. So, what do we have?

You can watch the 2003 Will Ferrell holiday comedy Elf for free (SD only), download some seasonal tracks from a handful of musicians, or check out exclusive content in Asphalt 8. Quite a few games see the arrival of either free in-app items, or reduced prices on for-purchase content.

Truth be told, it’s not the most impressive offer we’ve seen from Google – we’d love to see more actual apps featured (even if just discounted), and less of this in-app purchase business – but it’s hard to look a gift horse in the mouth. Head on through the source link and check out for yourself just what’s available.
