Google Play Pass Subscription Service: A few months back, The Apple introduced Apple Arcade, a game subscription service that will offer over 100 new games in partnership with game developers. Following the same suit, the search engine giant Google is working on a similar gaming service called Play Pass. It’s worth mentioning here that the Apple Arcade isn’t live yet. As per the latest report, Google has started testing the app, and the company spokesperson confirmed the same. In the way of double confirming it, the screenshots of the app have surfaced online revealing the signup page and the $4.99 (approx Rs. 350) monthly cost after 10-days of a free trial.
Screenshots from an anonymous user sent to Android Police show that Google could be close to rolling out the Play Pass subscription service, which was first tipped to be in the works in October last year. The service isn’t actively rolling out for all users, so it’s likely being tested with a limited user base for the time being.
The Android Police report further elaborates that the service could come with a free trial – mentioned to be 10 days in the screenshots. The price of the service is mentioned as $4.99 per month in the pictures, but this price could change when Google Play Pass Subscription Service is officially launched. Pricing and content curation could also vary by country, so it’s possible that India pricing won’t match the US or Europe pricing for the service.
Another screenshot suggests that the games like Stardew Valley and Marvel Pinball will be included in the subscription as well. This subscription service was spotted a year ago, and it may finally materialize soon.
“Explore a curated catalog spanning puzzle games to premium music apps and everything in between. From action hits to puzzles and fitness trackers, with Google Play Pass you unlock access to hundreds of premium apps and games without ads, download fees or in-app purchases,” a screenshot reads.
