Launch the Google Play Store
Play Pass is located in the Play Store, naturally, and doesn’t have its own app or webpage. Launch the Play Store to get started.
Tap your profile avatar
Next, tap on your profile avatar located in the upper right corner. This will bring up a menu with items like managing your apps and device. In addition to notifications and offers, payments and subscriptions, Play Protect, your app library and, of course, Play Pass.
Tap Play Pass and tap the Get Started button
Tap the Play Pass menu to load the Play Pass page. Then press the green Start button to begin. This will set you up with the monthly plan which costs $4.99 per month.
You can also tap on the annual subscription link
If you’d rather opt for an annual subscription, there’s a link just below the green Get Started button. This will actually save you 50% off the cost of Play Pass over 12 months. And if you plan on keeping it for the year, this is definitely the way to go.
Select your payment method and click Subscribe
It’s the end of the line. All you have to do is select your payment method. You have several options here. And can use your credit or debit card, your Google Pay balance, google play balance, and even PayPal. You should even be able to use your wireless provider’s billing if you’ve set it up for Play Store payments.
Once you’ve selected your payment method for Play Pass, hit the big green subscribe button at the bottom and you’re good to go. Once payment is made and your subscription is active, you can view all the Play Pass content available in the Play Store and start installing whatever you want.
Where to find Play Pass content
Once your subscription is active, a new menu will appear in the navigation bar at the bottom of the Play Store UI. Without Play Pass, you should see Games, Apps, Deals, Movies, and Books. With an active subscription, a new Play Pass icon will appear to the left of the Games button.
Tap it to load the Play Pass page and you’ll see everything there. There are several sections to help you find what might interest you. Including a For You section based on things Google thinks you might like. Here are some other helpful tips on using Play Pass and what it offers.
