Since 2019, in the USA, Google is offering a monthly subscription which allows access to the applications and games on mobile without see advertising or pay for premium jobs. And starting this week, the subscription, which is comparable to Apple Arcade on the ecosystem of Apple, is available in France.
In 2019, after the launch of the Apple service Arcade, which allows you to access a list of the games on the devices of the firm from Cupertino, Google has also launched its counter-offensive : Google Play Pass. It is a monthly subscription that allows access to a list of apps and games without ads, and without paying for premium jobs. Since then, we have no heard of this subscription offered by Google. But today, the firm of Mountain View announces new.
When Play Pass has been launched in the United States, it gave access to a list of 350 games and applications. And since then, Google has added 150 new titles to this list. In this period of a rather special kind, the firm of Mountain View also indicates that it has added titles designed specifically for children. In addition, a series of new titles will be their “first” on the Play Pass, a way for Google to counter the exclusives Apple Arcade.
Google now offers a yearly subscription that is less expensive for the user. While the monthly subscription to Play Pass costs $ 4.9 per in the United States, the annual subscription will cost 29,99 dollars.
Finally available in France !
But the most important is that now, Google Play Pass is available in France. ” Play Pass, including all of the updates we’re announcing today, arrives on Android devices in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom this week “, announces Austin Shoemaker, product manager at Google Play. Like most subscription-based services, Play Pass gives you a trial period of one month to new users. To access it, you must go to the application Play Store, tap the menu in the top left, then press ” Play Pass “, if the new service is already available.
In addition to the fact that this subscription allows Google to counter Apple Arcade, it could also be an interesting alternative to advertising on mobile applications : users will not see more ads, but the developers of apps receive income through subscriptions. After the success of this offer will depend mostly on the list of games and applications that are available.
