Games Released On Google+
12/08/2011 | Nicholas Griffin
Google + has been out their for a while now, (still not open to the public though) and has so far become extremely popular, with a very high demand which is probably going to get better with Google’s introduction of games, Vic Gundotra, Google’s Senior Vice President of Engineering wrote:
“With the Google+ project, we want to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to the web. But sharing is about more than just conversations.
“The experiences we have together are just as important to our relationships. We want to make playing games online just as fun, and just as meaningful, as playing in real life.
“That means giving you control over when you see games, how you play them and with whom you share your experiences. Games in Google+ are there when you want them and gone when you don’t.”
As with the account system games will not be available for everyone yet, but should be rolled out the the whole Google circle soon, at the moment Google have only secured 16 titles so not much compition there, but some of the games are some pretty big names such as Angry Birds, Bejewled, Bliz, Bubble Island, Zaynga Poker and Diamond Dash.
Introducing games is most defiently the right way to go for Google+ with hundreads if not millions of users logging into Facebook just to play the games, with most of this being employees in an office Google might have the upper hand with the mix of CIrcles, Hangouts and this great selection of games, this would appeal quite highly to the business types.
