Google Play Games App Now Live on Google Play Store

Google Play Games

At this morning’s press event, Google announced that the Google Play Games app was ready for users to download through the Play store. The app is made for users to keep track of their achievements in different games, as well as to stack themselves up against their friends and global leaderboards. On top of that, you can also find new games to play that feature the game services that are offered by Google. 


  • Discover great games
  • Play with your friends, and see what they’re playing
  • Join multiplayer games
  • Track your achievements
  • Compare scores with other players

As you can see in the above image, I really need to go play more Granny Smith. Go grab it on Google Play right now.

    Anyone else notice that any ad driving app now has Google Play Games as its ads now.

  • jaredgreenwald

    There needs to be a section on the play store within the Games category for games that integrate with the service

    • Dan

      I would like to have a list of games that currently work with the service too.

  • Mike

    Works great on my S4. Happy to have a dedicated games app

  • Omar McFarlane

    this thing is saying its incompatible with my nexus 4…what gives.

  • Eric

    I was hoping there was gonna be an app for it..

  • RayLovesick

    Chromecast app is now live on Google Play as well!

  • IrishSid

    I have never been able to invite people to a game. They can invite me though, and I put my wifes account on my phone and could invite friends from that.

    All settings seem the same and I have people in my circles.

    Has anyone else encountered this? Any fix? I have asked eveywhere.

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    Is it only for 4.3+?

    • JimmyHACK

      FYI, they tell you on the App page

      “Requires Android

      2.2 and up”

      • Daeshaun Griffiths

        Thanks, i was asking because when i search “play games” i don’t see it.

        • Mike

          Did you click the link above?

  • Thomas

    When I try to install it gives an error message saying can’t get info from server. Anybody else having issues?

  • Kilam Daha

    Google needs a cloud-based game-save platform. It’s so annoying to have to manually backup game data when switching ROMs.

    • chris kilps

      that is a part of this

    • JimmyHACK

      They launched that feature at I/O this year. Devs have to use it though. it is great.

      • Jeremy Sheehan

        Plague, Inc supports this. Works like a charm, too.

    • Alberto Martinez

      Agreed that would be amazing.

    • Eric

      Riptide GP2 use’s it. I really like it.

  • I don’t see the image, so I’ll have to take your word for it.

    • Turn off your ad block and support a free blog maybe? Just a thought 😛

      • Mitch Joa

        Only your images aren’t showing up for me, I can see Kellex’s.

        • Your conclusion is most likely correct 😛

            Really? Not using an ad blocker but man thats sneaky.

          • That is the tag used to stop ads from popping up on header images. Not sure what you mean by sneaky? :-/

          • Justin W

            I think someone might be forgetting to use it… I’ve been wondering why I randomly see ads on the header images… It’s usually only on my tablet though so IDK.

          • We can choose which images to have them appear or not appear. Usually, we only like to have them on images that are bigger than usual. That way the silly ad doesn’t take up the whole picture.

          • Justin W

            Gotcha. It just looks weird on a tablet.
