Google+ gets games and Angry Birds

On August 18, 2011, in Social Networking, by Mike Jefferson

After rumors about Game Stream on Google+, Google has now unveiled games on Google+ in order to compete with other major social networking giants. Going against Facebook and other social networking websites isn’t easy, therefore, Google has introduced Games Stream as well as games on Google+. Although the number of available games isn’t as large as we thought it would be, it features some of the most popular games from Facebook, along with Angry Birds. As for the Games Steam, you can use it to find out what games your friends have been playing and get notifications about their game achievements. Of course, Facebook didn’t take this move lightly, and it has introduced a similar features that allow players to bookmark their favorite games so that their friends can keep an eye on what they are playing.

Games on Google+ aren’t that impressive, since there’s not a large number of them available at the moment, but we’re expecting to see additional games soon enough. Overall, it’s a welcome addition, that should keep gamers entertained.
