Google is officially launching a subscription based arcade section within its play store called Play Pass. Play Pass will provide users with access to over 350 premium mobile games and will cost $1.99 per month for the first year. Similar to Apple Arcade, games are organized by genre, popularity and other factors — just like a mini app store. The Play Pass subscription also allows the games to be shared with the whole family. The family manager can share their Play Pass subscription with up to five other family members, who can each access the titles independently. Interestingly, the apps launched in Play Pass will be accessible on other mobile platforms, but with Apple Arcade, the mobile games launched within their store will not be released cross platform.
