A smattering of hints is pointing towards a new Google service called Play Pass, which would be a subscription for access to paid apps and games. The news comes from Android Police, where the team has taken note of several pieces of evidence. The first is from XDA developer Quinny899, who found an in-development Play Store feature called Play Pass back in June. The code for this feature indicated that it related to a subscription, but there was little known beyond that.
Added on top of this, however, a new Google Opinion Rewards survey has indicated the potential for Google Play Pass. The question asked, “Imagine your app store has a subscription that offers hundreds of dollars worth of paid apps and games for a monthly fee. How well does Pass describe this service?” This backs up the idea of a Play Pass subscription service, and isn’t the first time that Google has floated concept ideas through its survey system.
What are your thoughts on Play Pass? Would you utilize this service?
