Google’s Play Pass subscription service is official
September 25, 2019

More than 350+ premium games and apps included.

Google’s Apple Arcade competitor Play Pass has officially launched on the Play Store. The subscription service will cost $4.99, where you will have access to more than 350+ games and apps that are completely unlocked – this means that all in-app purchases will be available without any ads.

Play Pass will support Android devices running KitKat 4.4 or later and will include high-profile games like Monument Valley, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Limbo, Mini Metro, and even Terraria. Even popular apps like AccuWeather and FaceTune will also be part of Play Pass.

A new Play Pass tab will be added on the Play Store app, where you can browse the apps that will be part of the subscription service. Nearly all Android devices are supported: smartphones, tablets, and Chromebooks. Android TV is also said to gain some support so you can play the games on your TV.

If you look at it, Google’s offering is better than Apple’s considering that it doesn’t just include games, but some apps as well. Additionally, Google is also offering a limited $1.99 a month subscription for the first year if you subscribe before October 10th. Play Pass is now rolling out in the US with international markets following shortly after.
