Google Play Pass: All you need to know

by September 25, 2019 0 comments

After months of testing, Google has finally rolled out a new ‘Play Pass’ subscription service, which gives you access to over 350 apps and games that are completely unlocked, meaning they are all free of ads, in-app purchases, and upfront payments. The Google Play Pass offers titles from Stardew Valley to AccuWeather, with new apps and games added every month. So, where is the catch?

Google will charge a monthly fee.

The Play Pass service is initially available to Android devices in the US this week, and Google plans to bring it to additional countries soon. Google is also offering a 10-day free trial and you can subscribe for just $4.99 per month. Google is also offering Play Pass for only $1.99/month for your first twelve months, then $4.99/month, for a limited period.

The Play Pass has a collection of hundreds of titles, from games to apps that power productivity. You will be able to find games such as Terraria, Monument Valley, Risk, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and apps such as AccuWeather. Other less popular but interesting games include LIMBO, Lichtspeer, Mini Metro, Old Man’s Journey and many more.

And to let users easily find these apps and games, Google has added a new Play Pass tab for subscribers. Play Pass apps and games can still be found throughout the Play Store, simply look for the Play Pass “ticket.” All the apps and games can be found on the Play Pass homepage or in the Play Store with the ticket and are completely unlocked with your subscription.

And similar to the Google Play Family Library, Play Pass subscription can be shared with up to five other family members. Play Pass can be accessed by each of the family members individually, thus your experience won’t be affected by what other members have downloaded or viewed. Play Pass also contains a wide selection of family-friendly content, ranging from Toca Boca classics to the My Town series.

After the Play Pass is available on your Android device starting this week, you can start enjoying your free trial by simply opening the Play Store app, tapping the menu at the top left, and looking for “Play Pass.”
