Nowadays it seems like there is an app for everything. Do you hate waiting in the cold in order to hail a taxi? Well, then you can simply use Uber instead. Not just that, but there are apps which make it easier for people to communicate with each other such as WhatsApp and so on. The one thing that all these apps have in common is that they are free to use because the developers generate revenue through ads.
Google is Working on “Play Pass”
On the other hand, there are some apps which require users to pay a hefty fee so that they can get access to all the features that those apps have to offer. As we all know, smartphone fans are not that keen on spending money on apps. However, it looks like Google might have a solution to that problem by placing all the paid apps under a single bundle that Android users can access by paying a subscription fee.
Even though the idea of bundling all paid apps under a single subscription might sound crazy, this might be true. Members of the XDA Forum have found a line of code in the Android operating system that contains a rather interesting code line which mentions “Play Pass”.
Paying a Subscription Fee for Premium Apps
People who are willing to pay top dollar in order to get access to premium apps should be excited about this feature. Although, this also raises the question of how will Google select which apps get to be included in the bundle?
Some members of the XDA Forum are already speculating that Google might favorize some apps over the others and this will cause an outcry in the Android community. Nonetheless, Google has yet to confirm or deny the existence of the “Play Pass” service and we don’t know when it will launch.
