Google announced yesterday that Play Pass is rolling out to Android devices in India this week, with a curated collection of more than 1000 titles across 41 categories.
Play Pass, first launched to US consumers in September 2019, and later made available in other Western regions in summer 2020, is a subscription service providing access to many apps and games without ads, in-app purchases, and upfront payments.
Users in India can get started with a one-month trial and subscribe for Rs. 99 per month or pay Rs. 889 for the year. They can also avail a prepaid one month subscription for Rs. 109.
With Google family group, family managers can share their Play Pass subscription with up to five other family members.
Google says Play Pass runs on devices that are at least on Android 4.4 and with the Google Play app at Version 16.6.25.
The Play Pass collection currently includes well-known games like Jungle Adventures, World Cricket Battle 2 and Monument Valley, useful apps like Utter, Unit Converter and AudioLab, and hidden gems like Photo Studio Pro, Kingdom Rush Frontiers TD, and more.
Google says it will continue to work with global and local developers to add great new games and apps every month so that there’s always something new to discover in Play Pass.
Once Play Pass is available this week, you can start your trial by simply opening the Play Store app on your Android device, tapping the profile icon at the top right, and looking for “Play Pass.” Subscribers can access the collection of apps and games through the Play Pass tab or by looking for the Play Pass “ticket” when browsing titles on the Play Store.
