Google has announced that their Google Plus games have began rolling out to users of the social network. With Google Plus only being a little over a month old, the quick addition of games along with a series of user requested updates shows their commitment to the new social network platform.
The games being announced for initial roll-out are Angry Birds, Bejeweled Blitz, Bubble Island, City of Wonder, Collapse! Blast, Crime City, Diamond Dash, Dragon Age Legends, Dragons of Atlantis, Edge World, Flood-It, Monster World, Sudoku, Wild Ones, Zombie Lane and Zynga Poker.
Will my stream be cluttered with Game notifications?
No, Google has said they are keeping the Game notifications separate from the conversation streams. If you want to see the game content you can see it, but only if you choose to. This is a big relief to users who moved to Google Plus just to escape the spam like game notifications on Facebook. If you do want to enter Google’s game universe all you have to do is click the Games button at the top of your streams. On that page you can view game invites, share your high scores and see game updates from your circles.
Google Plus Opens to Developers
The good news for developers is that Google has setup the Google+ developer blog. You can visit the blog to keep up to date with the latest API news for application developers. Hopefully we will see some innovative non-game apps in the coming months!
