Google Play Pass subscription-apps and games

In July Google started testing a service called Play Pass at the cost of $4.99 per month with a 10-day free trial during the testing period. This service will offer the ability to buy hundreds of premium apps and games for a monthly cost. The subscription service will allow for some apps and games to be 100% ad-free and will have no in-app purchases and all functionality unlocked.

Apple’s Arcade seems to be a similar offering but with Apple, it is focused on games, whereas this new service by Google is focused on both games and apps.

My Comments

It is too early for me to say if this is a good deal or not. This is going to depend on how many games and apps will be included in the price. Hopefully, Google will keep the titles updated often and offer value to the user. The service will cost the user up to $59.88 per year. If they continue to have new titles and offers all the time then this might be a way to save money. Users might also get the incentive to download games and apps to test that they might not have had any interest in purchasing before.

Only time will tell but looking at the testing titles so far which includes games such as Stardew Valley this seems a good value for money and would have cost $7.99 without the Play Pass subscription so already a saving of $3.
