Google Play Pass

Google Play Pass coming to UK and Annual subscription

Google Play Pass coming to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain and UK this week

Last updated:

Google launched its Google Play Pass subscription service in the US back in September last year,  bringing access to more than 350 apps and games that are completely unlocked—all free of ads, in-app purchases and upfront payments.

When launched, Google Play Pass was exclusively available in the US. However, the subscription service is coming to Android devices in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain and the UK this week.

In addition to monthly pricing, Google are now offering a new subscription option for Play Pass. Google Play Pass costs £4.99 per month or £29.99 per year in the UK, and family managers can share access with up to five other family members.

For those already subscribed in the US, upgrading is easy ($29.99). Just open the Play Store app, go to the Play Pass tab, and scroll down to find “Upgrade to a yearly subscription.”

One of the main reasons why people would subscribe to this is the game library itself. Google says they’ve added more than 150 new titles in the past few months and now they’re adding more.

Some of the newer games include classics like Sonic the Hedgehog, award-winning indie games like Teslagrad, Forgotton Anne, and Sally’s Law, stress-relieving games like Golf Pass.

There is a special section for games for kids, including titles from Sesame Street Workshop, Learny Land, and other kid-friendly apps and games. You can find these titles when you go to the “Apps and games for kids” section and you’ll see a “Teacher approved” badge.

This is important and useful for those with kids who will be learning from home because of COVID-19 restrictions in place.

Other games will be available for Google Play Pass when they launch this year. A one-month trial is available by simply opening the Play Store app, tapping the menu at the top left, and looking for “Play Pass.”
