You may have to pay for an Android subscription in the future

Google PlayStore is teasing an Android App Subscription fee that is similar to that of iOS

Paying for an app or media content on Apple App store is not a new thing to many iOS users, this is regarded as pass subscription, especially for high graded Application. A similar process is about to surface on Google play store as well, requiring a pass fee to enable the download of Application, maybe other media content will be included afterward.

In June, an XDA Developer exploring Play Store code stumbled upon a disabled feature called “Play Pass.” Forcing the feature on didn’t seem to do anything but decompiling the code led to the discovery that it involved subscriptions of some sort. They didn’t think much of it because features like this are discovered regularly but rarely make it to the real world, so it wasn’t reported at the time.

ABout some days ago, a user of Google opinion reward answered to a question, referring to the time before the naming of Android 7.0 as ‘Nougat’, people started stating names of tasty foods that start with ‘N’ and it went viral, some people, however, concluded that the act was the reason for naming the Android version after a tasty food that starts with ‘N’. Just like in that case, While there’s no guarantee this new Google feature will roll out, it seems like there’s a good likelihood. Google will simply be the latest in a long line of companies to introduce a subscription model to its products.
