Majority of the people were gearing up for the Google I/O event, especially for one major announcement about Google Play Games. But the recent leaks about the Play Games have shown everything about it and all the features it will have when it will be released officially.
What is Google Play Games?
Google Play Games is actually an update to the current Play Store but also features a lot of other functionality like multiplayer gaming, leaderboard, achievements and things like that. If you recall, these are some of the features that are also present in the Apple’s GameCenter available for iOS users.
Besides the actually multiplayer option a game provides, Play Games also provides additional features to stay connected with your friends and other players on the same OS who are playing games.
When we look closely, we can see that we can also switch between accounts. For example if two people have their own Gmail accounts, they can use their account in the mobile phone while playing.
Matchmaking and invites are also a part of the new Play Games. Play Games will auto pick players for you depending what type of games you play.
The achievements are one of the biggest things that will be available with the new Play Games. Users can unlock achievements by doing certain steps or clearing certain levels of a game that has achievements.
Another big thing is the feature to save the games on cloud. This is another big step made by Google since Apple was already providing this service to its customers. With the increase in cloud storage use, people demand more options in saving their data on cloud for later use.
All the features look great and exciting about the new Play Games but who knows what else Google have in the new Play Games. Because these are some of the features that we got our hands on but what if there are other features that we didn’t get or see. Well to figure this out, we need to wait for the Google I/O to see what Google will pull up this time at the event.
