Apple announced its latest Game subscription service called Apple Arcade recently, which allowed its users to play 100 premium quality games at just $4.99 per month. According to the media, the subscription service with all its glory has been proven a successful attempt, especially for the Apple ecosystem. To contend against Apple Arcade, google announced it’s subscription service priced at $4.99 as well called Google Play Pass. The only downside is that Google Play Pass is only available in the US right now. We at Mr. Noob found out a unique way to circumvent this issue and download unlimited premium games and apps by getting the Google Play Pass in India which will work for other regions as well.
Google Play Pass Vs Apple Arcade
Since the Google Play Pass is competing against the Apple Arcade, the main objective of google here is to give paid games for free. But unlike apple, google lets you download apps as well as games, which is a sweet deal.
What all is included in the Google Play Pass?
The google play pass comes with a specialized curated section of apps and games through which users can download games and apps that are usually paid, for free. There will be no in-app purchases as well as no ads will be shown in any of the apps.
Early-Bird Discount Offering By Google
To increase the sales of the Google Play Pass, Google is offering discounts on its monthly tariff. If you sign up within two weeks of its launch, you can get the Google Play Pass at just $1.99 for the next one year, which honestly sounds like a much more tempting deal. So without further ado, let’s see how you can Get Google Play Pass in India or any country right now.
Get Google Play Pass Outside USA in Any Region
As discussed earlier, you can only Get the Google Play Pass in the US which will require changing the play store to the USA. however, there are some caveats which you should keep in mind before proceeding further. If these conditions are okay for you, then you can go ahead and get yourself a Google Play Pass subscription in India or any country. Let’s have a look at the conditions :
- Before proceeding, make sure that you are sure to move your current play store account to the US Play store account as you can only change the play store country once a year.
