Google has launched Play Pass – a new subscription service that gives users access to more than 350 apps and games that are completely unlocked – all free of ads, in-app purchases and upfront payments. Play Pass offers a curated collection of titles from Stardew Valley to AccuWeather, with new apps and games added every month.

Play Pass is coming to Android devices in the US this week, and Google will be bringing it to additional countries soon. USers can get started with a 10-day free trial and subscribe for $4.99/month. For a limited time, users can get Play Pass for only $1.99/month for the first twelve months, then $4.99/month.

The Play Pass collection spans hundreds of titles, from games that help users unwind to apps that power productivity. “Play Pass helps encourage people to try new experiences they would not have otherwise,” said Maria Sayans, CEO of Ustwo games, creators of Monument Valley.
Users will find well-known apps and games like Terraria, Monument Valley, Risk, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and AccuWeather. And others you might be less familiar with that are just as amazing, like Lichtspeer, Mini Metro, Old Man’s Journey and many more. With new additions every month – including titles like This War of Mine and Cytus coming soon –  Google said there wukk always be something new to discover.
Just like Google Play Family Library, family managers can share their Play Pass subscription with up to five other family members. Each family member can access Play Pass individually, so your experience won’t be affected by what others download.
