At the end of last year, XDA-developers team has found in the Google Play code some other mention of Google Play Pass. This showed that it would be a subscription service to access premium games, as we expect from Apple Arcade. No more was known about it until last August, when some testers published screenshots in which their offer was seen, but now Google has made it official.
This week, the news is expected to be dedicated to the Apple conference and the launch of the new iPhone. This event could also be an opportunity to launch Apple Arcade, a subscription to a game catalog on iPhone and iPad .
The relationship with Google? The giant is also preparing a subscription, this time for applications and paid games from the Play Store.

Now the official release of the service is approaching. The official account of the Google Play Store on Twitter has indeed announced the upcoming launch of the Google Play Pass, confirming at the same time the business name of the service.
For a few dollars per month. This subscription allows unlimited access to applications and games usually paid. Such as Stardew Valley, Life is Strange, Limbo or Ticket to Ride.
It’s hard to know if Google plans to launch this subscription in September. Or may prefer to wait for its October conference where the giant will unveil its Pixel 4. A smartphone that will compete the iPhone 11, with a very close design.
