Google officially announces its Apple Arcade-rival Play Pass is 'coming soon'

Google Play Pass

Play Pass is an upcoming subscription service from Google, where paying every month will grant you access to a library of apps and games with no advertising or in-app purchases. You can see the official changelog below. Previously this service was named "ARCore". From apps and games to books and even movies, we can find everything on the Google Play Store.

Apple Arcade is expected to launch in fall, along with the company's other highly anticipated products.

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. It was then reported on by Android Police earlier this year, when Google started testing it with a select group of users.

It further proves the similarity between Google Pass and Apple Arcade.


Google unveiled its new subscription service on Twitter. For example, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, Stardew Valley, Max Payne, etc. Back in March this year, Apple launched its game streaming platform called Apple Arcade featuring more than 100 games.

Would you pay $5 per month to play a bunch of games and access a bunch of apps? Arcade has developers from Capcom, Konami, Annapurna interactive and a lot more.

Google's announcement came just as Apple is gearing up for Apple Arcade, which it announced last March. This means that Android users in India might get the subscription service at a distinct price point and with some other premium apps and games that what would be available in the USA or Europe.

Google usually holds an event during October, so hopefully, the Play Pass will likely be announced there.
