Since 2012, Google Play has been a one-stop-shop to find, enjoy, and share your favorite apps, games, and digital content, and we are always looking for new ways to enable people to enjoy these digital experiences. We are excited to announce that Google Play Pass is now coming to India.
Play Pass is a subscription service that is currently available in 90 countries, which provides access to many apps and games without ads, in-app purchases, and upfront payments.
Play Pass is rolling out to Android devices in India this week and will offer a high-quality and curated collection of 1000+ titles across 41 categories from developers across 59 countries, including India. You can get started with a one-month trial and subscribe for Rs. 99 per month or pay Rs. 889 for the year. You can also avail a prepaid one month subscription for Rs. 109. With Google family group, family managers can share their Play Pass subscription with up to five other family members.
Apps and games you love, plus more to discover
The Play Pass collection includes a range of exciting titles, from games that help you unwind - be it sports, puzzles, or action games - to apps that power productivity. You will find well-known games like Jungle Adventures, World Cricket Battle 2, and Monument Valley, helpful apps like Utter, Unit Converter and AudioLab, as well as hidden gems such as Photo Studio Pro, Kingdom Rush Frontiers TD, and many more.
We will continue to work with global and local developers to add great new games and apps every month so that there is always something new to discover on Play Pass.
Helping local developers grow their global user base
We want to deliver products and programs that the Play community - both users and developers - find value in, and we are always looking for new ways to do this. With the potential to access users across 90 countries, Play Pass will offer Indian developers of all types of apps and games a new avenue to expand their global user base and unlock new revenue streams. We are excited to partner with more local developers to build amazing experiences users love. Developers can find out more about how to participate here.
Once Play Pass is available this week, you can start your trial by simply opening the Play Store app on your Android device, tapping the profile icon at the top right, and looking for “Play Pass.” Subscribers can access the collection of apps and games through the Play Pass tab or by looking for the Play Pass “ticket" when browsing titles on the Play Store.
