Google Play Pass Subscription Service to Launch Soon, Google Confirms

Google Play Pass Subscription Service to Launch Soon, Google Confirms

You can see the official changelog below.

Besides, you can safely install apps from the Google Play Store, thanks to Google's Play Protect security measure that scans the applications for malware before downloading them onto your device. Previously this service was named "ARCore". Priced at $4.99 monthly "for the whole family", the game-subscription service will be available with a one-month free trial.

"We are so excited to launch Apple Arcade on the App Store".

The user doesn't have any hold on what the app does, as it gains access to their SMS messages, copying the OTP that gets sent to authenticate a payment.

Originally, Android Police reported about the subscription in July after a tester shared screenshots with the publication. Google might very well want to steal some of Apple's thunder by launching a subscription service of its own around the same time too.

Apple Arcade also is set to feature titles from partners including Sega, WarnerMedia's Cartoon Network, Bossa Studios, Finji, Giant Squid, Klei Entertainment, Lego, Mistwalker, Snowman and ustwo games.

Have you ever bought an app on the Google Play Store? Several premium apps like Spotify could potentially come under the Play Pass, thus widening the umbrella of services it can provide. Aside from games, the subscription will also include regular apps. Each app, including fitness trackers and music tools, will be ad-free and will not require further in-app purchases. Now, while people continue to wait for Apple Arcade to go live later this spring, it seems Google is testing out something similar with its $5-a-month Google Play Pass.

Google Play Pass was first reported back in October a year ago.
