Google Play Pass is one of the best value subscriptions in the Android space. And now it’s available in many more countries. The service has received mostly positive reviews in the markets it’s already available in, and now Google is offering the same value as it rolls Google Play Pass out in a slew of other markets.
Where Is Google Play Pass Available?
The company recently took to The Keyword to announce that its popular Play Pass service is rolling out in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, and the United Kingdom. That’s on top of the United States, where Google Play Pass first launched back in September 2019 .
That’s a total of 10 different countries that have access to Google Play Pass now. When compared to Apple Arcade though, Google is still lagging way behind. Apple’s subscription service is available in more than 150 countries, as it’s available almost anywhere the App Store is accessible.
Still, it’s always nice to see more regions get access to a useful service like Google Play Pass, and hopefully, Google will continue to make it available in new markets gong forward.
Something New for the US, Too
In addition to launching Play Pass for more users around the world, Google is also launching a new subscription for users in the United States. Instead of paying monthly, the company is now letting users sign up for an annual subscription at $29.99. That’s about half the price of paying monthly at $4.99/month, so it’s a good deal for anyone who knows they’re going to keep the subscription for the long haul.
How to Try Google Play Pass
If you would like to try out Google Play Pass now that it’s available on your country, open the Google Play Store app on your device. Then tap the hamburger menu, followed by Play Pass. From there, you can sign up for a one-month trial to test out the games and apps that are available and see if it’s something that works for you.
Google Play Pass definitely offers good value for money, especially if you’re the sort of person who enjoys playing quick mobile games on your phone or tablet .
