Google Play Pass arrives in 24 new countries

0

Google Play Pass was off to a bumpy start when the service launched last year. Many saw it as a lazy response to Apple Arcade and criticized it for its lack of exclusive titles. Nevertheless, Google seems keen to keep on pushing the service forward. The company has expanded the Play Pass portfolio to 500+ titles during the past year. Now the premium subscription service is launching in 24 new countries. 

What is Google Play Pass?

Basically, Google Play Pass is a subscription service that offers a pass to hundreds of games and apps without any ads or in-app purchases. This experience costs $4,99 per month and $29,99 per year (4,99 € per month and 29,99 € per year in Europe), and family managers can share access with up to 5 other family members. 

What do you need?

  • Android version 4.4 and above.
  • Google Play Store app version 16.6.25 and above.
  • Valid payment method
  • Have the same billing country and Google Play country.
  • Use a Google account.

You can find detailed instructions on Google’s official help page.

The service is still rough around the edges and maybe you don’t need access to all 500+ games and apps, but there are some interesting ones that can justify the $5/month fee, including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Titan Quest (yep, that one!), Terraria, LIMBO, Shadow Fight 2, and more.
