Google launches Play Games app to take on Apple's Game Center
| by Nishtha Kanal |
Google has made a bunch of important announcements yesterday, including the launch of a refreshed Nexus 7 tablet and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Another important announcement is a new social gaming app, Google Play Games. Google had announced the Google Play games service during the I/O back in May and the dedicated app is another step towards making gaming a chief focus for Android.
The Google Play Games app will act as a hub similar to Apple’s Game Center and users will be able to match achievements against their friends, save progress and scores when switching devices.
