Last year in October, leaks about Google’s Play Pass service surfaced the internet for the first time. However, they were just leaks and no such service was announced by Google then. Back in March this year, Apple launched its game streaming platform called Apple Arcade featuring more than 100 games. This is when things started to pick up steam between Google and rivals Apple. It wasn’t until August, that screenshots of a beta test version of Google Play Service were leaked. And now, finally, Google confirms over a tweet that the highly anticipated Google Play Pass is coming soon to Android devices. This seems to be the perfect timing from Google’s end to officially announce the service as Apple is all set to announce new iPhones and probably new services and features for Apple Arcade today at the Apple Special Event.

What is Google Play Pass:

Google Play Pass will offer “access to hundreds of premium apps” and paid games via a dedicated section to browse apps included in Play Pass. These apps will be free to use on a monthly basis subscription of the Pass. And if we are to believe the leaks from last month, the service will cost around $4.99(approx. Rs. 360) monthly. Google Play Pass, quite similar to Apple Arcade, will offer a large library of games ready to download and play for one monthly fee. Another interesting feature is that Play Pass will also offer non-gaming apps.

Since Apple is reportedly working with gaming giants like Disney, Sega, and Annapurna Interactive in an attempt to bring more than 100 new titles through the Apple Arcade service via iPad, Mac, and Apple TV devices, it will be really interesting to see how Google faces the rivals and what Google Play Pass has in store to take on Apple Arcade.
