Google is carrying out a test on a monthly subscription service which gives users access to a library of games and apps for Android devices on the Play Store, according to a Wednesday report from Android Police. The first hints about the Play Pass surfaced in 2018, but the news sounds much more relevant considering Apple Arcade looming.

In the report, there are screenshots of the signup page of Play Pass, indicating a monthly cost of Rs 346. The subscription will provide several games, including Marvel Pinball and Stardew Valley.

“From action hits to puzzles and fitness trackers, with Google Play Pass you unlock access to hundreds of premium apps and games without ads, download fees or in-app purchases,” as noted in the page.

The difference between Google Play Pass and Apple Arcade is that rather than a game selection exclusively available to Apple Arcade subscribers, the Play Pass will offer both games and services, which include fitness trackers and music apps.

In March 2019, Apple unveiled its game subscription service, Apple Arcade; however, its price remains unknown. Google can change the price of its Play Pass corresponding to Apple’s service’s price. The Cupertino-based company said that it will roll out the service to over 150 countries this fall. It will also immediately offer over 100 new, exclusive games which are under the development of the company and developers.

Google did not respond immediately to a comment request.
