Many people were expecting the Google Plus Games to go live after launching the new Google+ Social Network. Well.. It’s already there, however there are no specific details shared on their plans about incorporating games into Google Plus.
Google Plus Games won’t be annoying!
It’s clear that Google wants to put everything on it’s place, so when you get an update from a Google Plus Game, it won’t bother you by popping on your main stream page, which is really cool! But where it will show?
Here is a quote from Google help pages:
When you post an update from a game, it won’t show up in the stream on the Google+ home page. On your Games page, visit the Games stream to see a list of game updates shared with you in Google+.
You can interact with posts just as you would from your stream on the Google+ homepage. For example, you can comment on, mute, and reshare posts.
This is just great, I hope Google will learn from the competition with Facebook! So expect to see the new icon in the G+ navigation soon!
G+ Games and The Battle of Game Developers
I see a huge opportunity for game developers, there will be a big competition and many people will make big money soon.
I’ve read this today on ReadWriteWeb.com:
“The battle for game developer attention is likely to be heated. Tricia Duryee reported late last month at All Things D that multiple sources told her Google would try to undercut Facebook by charging developers a lower fee for things like in-app sales”.
Just saw the Google Plus Games tab on my G+profile:
- Google+ Games Stream confirmed
- Developers Now Working with Google+ Social Gaming Team
- Google Plus Games Arrive to Challenge Facebook
- Get Ready for Google+ Games
The fun has just begun!
