Netease Technologies News September 24, according to foreign media reports, Google recently announced the launch of an application bundled subscription service called Google PlayPass. For a monthly fee of $4.99, Android users can access more than 350 games and applications, and these games and applications do not advertise and do not support applications. Internal purchase.
Google will offer users a 10-day free trial service and plans to offer its first year service at a monthly price of $1.99. The service will be launched in the United States and other countries this week.
Google has a slightly different view of APP subscription models than Apple, which just launched its $4.99 game subscription service AppleArade last week. First, Google PlayPass includes applications and games. Second, Google does not directly fund the development of these games and applications, nor does it have exclusive requirements.
At the time of release, all applications and games included in Google PlayPass were already on the shelves of the PlayStore, the Google App Store, and will continue to be available independently. The Google App Store will soon begin displaying colorful tags next to the Google PlayPass bundled application, showing subscribers that it is free and attracting non-subscribers to register.
According to Google, about two-thirds of Google PlayPass applications are games, including long-standing popular games such as Stardew Valley, Monument Valley, Limbo and Risk. Non-game applications include large applications such as AccuWeather and smaller but popular Android applications such as Hi-Q Recorder.
Google PlayPass subscriptions can be shared with up to five family members and integrated with Googles parental control capabilities for the App Store. Unlike Apple, Google does not require applications included in Google PlayPass to have stricter privacy standards. (small)
