Games in Google+ Rolling Out to Users

Ryan Whitwam

There were hints early on that Google planned to add games to Google+, but the search giant wasn’t talking. Today Google has announced Games in Google+ . Everyone’s biggest fear was that the conversation-focused Google+ experience would be harmed by casual gaming, but it appears that El Goog is doing all it can to keep that from happening.

At the top of the page, there will be a new button that links to the Games area. While there, you can play games and see game updates from your circles. Google was careful to point out that the game updates are happening on your terms. If you don’t go to the games hub, you won’t be accosted by game updates.

Google worked with a few high profile developers to get a respectable stable of games ready to go at launch. Some of the better known titles include Angry Birds, Bejeweled Blitz, and Diamond Dash. The Games page will be rolling out to users in the coming days.
