Android users need to delete these 24 apps infected the ‘Joker’ malware

Android users need to delete these 24 apps infected the ‘Joker’ malware”

No other official or third-party Android app store is as popular as Google Play Store.

In addition, Apple at its latest iPhone event revealed that Apple Arcade will be launching in more than 150 countries on September 19, for a monthly fee of $4.99 with support for Apple's Family Sharing feature. Previously this service was named "ARCore".

So naturally, Google wants in with its upcoming Play Pass. Now it appears that Google is finally done with testing the Play Pass and will soon hit the Google PlayStore shelf for purchase. However, in early last month, an anonymous user sent some screenshots to Android Police that gave us a sneak peek at the development.

It further proves the similarity between Google Pass and Apple Arcade. Back in March this year, Apple launched its game streaming platform called Apple Arcade featuring more than 100 games. According to an analyst at CSIS Security Group named Aleksejs Kuprins, the malware has infected 24 apps on the Google Play Store, which have now been removed.

Among the games available at launch are Konami's "Frogger", an updated version of the arcade classic, and "Toy Town"; Capcom's "Shinsekai: Into the Depths", an underwater adventure game; and Annapurna Interactive's "Sayonara Wild Hearts" from developer Simogo, billed as a playable music video. The service, which was first tipped to be in the works last year, looks similar to Apple Arcade that was announced earlier this year to let Apple users access premium apps and games by paying a certain subscription amount.

Google Play Pass was first reported back in October previous year.
