Google launches Play Pass as competition to Apple Arcade

Google has begun rolling out a monthly subscription service that gives people access to apps an games without advertisements and in-app services. The subscription service is called ‘Google Play Pass’ and is priced at $4.99 per month. For the early birds, Google is giving away 10 days free and is also offering a one-year subscription for $1.99 per month.

Google Play Pass will give users access to over 350 games and apps on Android phones. These games and apps won’t have any ads and in-app purchase option. At first instant, Google’s subscription service might seem similar to Apple Arcade but it is a bit different as it includes both applications as well as games. Unlike Apple, Google is also not funding the development of the games or apps and is also not demanding exclusivity.

Google aforementioned during a web log post, “Play Pass is a new subscription service that gives you access to more than 350 apps and games that are completely unlocked-all free of ads, in-app purchases and upfront payments. Play Pass offers a high-quality, curated collection of titles from Stardew Valley to AccuWeather, with new apps and games added every month.”
Goole Play Pass will include apps and games like Terraria, Monument Valley, Risk, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and AccuWeather. And others you may be less accustomed to that are even as superb, like LIMBO, Lichtspeer, Mini Metro, Old Man’s Journey and many more. The search giant has confirmed that it will be launching new titles every month-including titles like This War of Mine and Cytus coming soon-there’s always something new to discover.

The service, which can have new apps and games value-added monthly, includes a ten day free-trial amount and can be priced at $1.99 per month for a year for a limited time.

It’s not clear how different Google’s subscription service will be from Apple’s offering, which features over 100 games from both prominent and indie games developers, many developed exclusively for Apple Arcade. Apple’s new service launches Sept. 19.
