Google is currently testing a new service, which is named as Play Pass service. It’s a $5 Android Games and Apps subscription service, which will allow the users to get access to premium apps and games. With the $5 per month subscription, users can play the select games and access premium apps with the service. It works just like Apple’s Arcade service, which will have multiple games available for a monthly subscription. When the Members of XDA forum spotted the code references of a service similar to Apple Arcade, the experts started expecting the rollout of the service.
Now, the company is currently testing the service of $5 Play Pass service with a bunch of beta testers. According to the screenshots shared by the testers, the service is priced at $4.99 per month and comes with a premium selection of games and apps with no in-app purchases. The screenshots suggest that the service is in the final stages of development and is ready to rollout. In the testing version, Google is claiming that they will provide everything from puzzle games to premium music apps with these subscriptions. The best premium apps and games chosen by the editors are included in the premium pass, which is going to change every month.
At first, the XDA members spotted the service and then posted it on the forum. Later, Google confirmed the existence of such a service and that it is in the testing phase. Just before the launch of Apple’s Arcade game subscription service, Google is going to launch the Play Pass. With a wide variety of the games and apps to play compared to Apple’s Arcade, people will make the switch to this service. Even though Apple is signing up thousands of game developers for its Arcade service, Google has a pretty right side to challenge Apple after launching the service.
