This service is a direct competitor to Apple's Arcade platform, and previous leaks have suggested that Play Pass will be priced at $4.99 per month. The screenshots of the new service, courtesy of Android Police, reveal some details about the upcoming subscription service. Android Market eventually turned into the Google Play Store, as we know it today.

Apple Arcade also is set to feature titles from partners including Sega, WarnerMedia's Cartoon Network, Bossa Studios, Finji, Giant Squid, Klei Entertainment, Lego, Mistwalker, Snowman and ustwo games.

Apple is under pressure to make more money out of subscription services instead, according to IDC.

The announcement of Apple Arcade and Apple TV comes after the research firm IDC reported a 25% drop so far in 2019 in iPhone shipments.

For the monthly price of $US4.99 (no Australian pricing is available yet), the screenshots show, you'll be able to access a catalogue of curated paid apps on the Google Play Store without ads.

With Apple expected to launch a similar service perhaps as early as tomorrow, it's not surprising to see Google ramping up the tease campaign. This means that Android users in India might get the subscription service at a distinct price point and with some other premium apps and games that what would be available in the USA or Europe.

The library will change over time as new games will be added but there's no word on whether old games will be removed or not.

Google usually holds an event during October, so hopefully, the Play Pass will likely be announced there. Now competition for the service has been confirmed to arrive in the form of Google Play Pass on Android.
