Google is testing a new app and game subscription service called Play Pass.
The company confirmed the news to Android Police after the site received screenshots from a reader, revealing details including a tentative monthly price of $4.99 for the service.
A Play Pass information page reads: “Explore a curated catalog spanning puzzle games to premium music apps and everything in between.
“From action hits to puzzles and fitness trackers, with Google Play Pass you unlock access to hundreds of premium apps and games without ads, download fees or in-app purchases.”
Another screenshot listed Stardew Valley and Marvel Pinball as games included with the service.
Apple is also due to launch a game subscription service called Apple Arcade this autumn. It will initially house over 100 “new and exclusive games” for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV, with more titles set to be added regularly.
The company has reportedly committed to spending some $500 million on the first wave of Apple Arcade games.
