Not long after, Google countered with its own similar subscription program: . Unlike Apple Arcade, Google Play Pass includes access to premium games and non-gaming apps available through Google Play that you would normally have to pay for individually for just $US5 ($7) a month, whereas Apple Arcade is purely gaming-focused. Each app in the Google Play Pass library is the full version and stripped of any ads or extraneous in-app purchases, but so far, Google has left out a pretty important detail: The full list of apps included in the program.
How To Tell If An Android App Is 'StrandHogg' Malware In Disguise
‘StrandHogg’ sounds like something out of Quake II, but it’s actually the name of a new Android vulnerability that allows malware apps to masquerade as legitimate apps, ask for permissions, and then perform all kinds of actions you probably wouldn’t want. For example, one of these apps could read and scan your messages, take photos using your camera, or even phish your logins by giving you bogus sign-in screens instead of the real deal. How do crappy apps take advantage of StrandHogg? According to the security firm Promon, StrandHogg affects all Android versions, even a fully updated Android device (as of when we wrote this article), and doesn’t require root access to work
Google says that over 350 apps and games are included in the service, and while several well-known apps have been highlighted by Google already, it’s fallen onto users to comb through the Google Play Store to figure out exactly which premium apps are included in your monthly subscription. Luckily, the folks at Android Police shouldered the burden and have identified over 320 of Google Play Pass’ 350-plus apps and games.

How To Install Google's Recorder App On The Pixel 2, 3, 3a And More
Google Recorder is one of the best apps you’ll find on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, thanks to how well it can automatically transcribe captured audio and even create subtitles for muted videos. And now we’ve got good news for owners of other Pixels: Google is finally porting this app over to the Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a smartphones (and their larger XL counterparts). Even if you don’t have a Pixel, you might still luck out. Android Police reports that many users have sideloaded Google Recorder onto non-Pixel phones, with varying degrees of success. © Provided by Lifehacker Australia Photo: Google Play Store" out-link" src="https://play.google.
Each of those games and apps, plus hundreds more, are included as part of the monthly Google Play pass subscription, and the service’s library will likely continue to grow in the coming months and years. Android Police has also updated their list as more apps are identified as part of the service, so it’s probably worth keeping an eye out for any future additions. While you only have free access to the apps while your subscription is active, it’s a highly enticing list (despite some filler), and Android users should skim the full list if you’re at all curious in what’s on offer.
Update Your Android's 'Carrier Services' App To See If You Have RCS Messaging .
RCS messaging, the next iteration of text messaging that Google has embraced for its Android operating system, has been rolling out to Android smartphones since November.
