Google Play Pass

Google revealed its new Play Pass service which, for USD5 per month, gives you unlimited access to a library of over 350 Android games free of microtransactions. Strangely, Google also included non-game applications like Photo Studio Pro and AccuWeather, which kind of confuses the message. By subscribing before October 10, you get a 10-day free trial period, followed by 12 months at just USD2 per month. This announcement comes on the heels of Apple’s Arcade service, offered at the same rate and including over 100 games for iOS, iPadOS and even MacOS.
