Here are 570 apps and games available on Google Play Pass right now

Google Play Pass, a program that gives subscribers no-charge, ad-free access to premium apps and apps with premium features, launched last year with over 350 titles on its roster. Thing is, though, Google doesn't make it easy to suss out all of the apps participating in the program, whether through the Play Store or external documentation on associated Google sites. Great. Well, guess what? We're gonna give it a try and list as many apps participating in Play Pass as we can.

New Pixel buyers get 3 free months of Stadia Pro, YouTube Premium, Google One, and Play Pass

Google's latest smartphones are more affordable than previous Pixel flagships (and most other 5G phones), but the big G is also throwing in some freebies to sweeten the deal. Purchases of the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G will come with three-month subscriptions to several Google services, and buyers in some countries can even snag a free set of Bose headphones.

Google Play Pass roundup: 25 of the best apps and games currently available on the service

Google Play Pass roundup: 25 of the best apps and games currently available on the service

Google Play Pass is a subscription service ($4.99 per month) that offers access to a vast selection of apps and games minus any advertisements and in-app purchases. Seeing that this service recently expanded to ten new territories, I've dug up a few of the more recent and notable listings for our Play Pass roundup. Initially, Google offered about 350 or so apps and games, but at this point, we've tracked at least 538 of them, and the list keeps growing. Of course, Google being Google, many of these titles are somewhat lackluster, which makes it difficult to know if the Play Pass subscription is worth it.

AccuWeather leaving Play Pass in the wake of Dark Sky’s Android demise

AccuWeather leaving Play Pass in the wake of Dark Sky’s Android demise

Android Police maintains a giant list of apps that are participating or have participated in Google's Play Pass program — where users pay a low subscription fee to remove ads and access premium features from said apps. But it's a finicky list to maintain because every addition is manual and it's extremely difficult to track any subtractions without a public database. Well, we can report on at least one departure that will take effect soon: AccuWeather is leaving Play Pass on September 20. If you use the weather app, you might not like the reason why.

Our 7 favorite weather apps, now that Dark Sky is dead

Our 7 favorite weather apps, now that Dark Sky is dead

As of August 1, Dark Sky is dust — at least for us Android users. At the end of March, it was announced that Apple had acquired the popular weather app and would be shutting off Android access on July 1. Turns out the company would end up extending that deadline by a month. Whoop-de-doo. But since then, we've seen a fake Dark Sky app pop up and then get put down in the Play Store. We get it: people are passionate about their weather apps. So, as Dark Sky finally makes it to pasture, we're once again updating our list of our favorite Android weather apps.
