What are Google subscriptions?
Google subscriptions are multiple in number, considering how the tech giant has acquired various studios and companies. Unfortunately, in the long list of Google’s vast subscription models, Stadia could have been part of this write-up too, but that is no longer the case following the announcement of its soon-to-arrive shut-down early next year. However, apart from Google’s cloud gaming service, there are plenty more subscriptions to pay heed to, some of which are truly unique.
From the added functionality brought forth by the likes of YouTube Premium that lets millions of people enjoy ad-free video playback to Pixel Pass for Google Pixel phones, we’re sure some of the enticing business models of Google have gotten to your wallet. But, personally speaking, we’ve found Google One to be the most attractive option, offering an all-in-one data plan for added Google services, such as Google Drive, Google Photos, and even Gmail.
Furthermore, Google partnered with Nest Aware to provide an in-house subscription service for installing surveillance footage, cameras, and similar tech equipment. Google Fi is another service that functions as a phone plan. Google flaunts it as an option that delivers better pricing than its competition and better coverage in select regions. In gaming, all that’s left now is Google Play Pass, but don’t think of it as anything underwhelming.
It can often be daunting to keep all of your Google subscriptions in one place, significantly when their numbers increase. To make sure things don’t go out of control, the developers have created a dedicated page online to help you be wary of all the Google subscriptions and services you’ve purchased on your side. All you need to do is know what web page to visit, and you will be golden.
The following section will take it from here and detail an in-depth tutorial for checking your Google subscriptions. After that, we’ll follow up with another section for managing your bought Google services. Let’s get started with no further ado.
