New statistics, service alerts and increased storage for games
The Google Play Games app has only been available for a few months now, but Google is expanding the developer tools related to the service starting today. First up are game services statistics in the developer console, which will give devs information about player activity such as how many players have signed into the game via Google, the number of players who unlocked achievements and how many are participating in leaderboards.
Next up are game services alerts in the developer console, which will give devs a heads-up about issues related to Google Play Games in their apps. Google is also doubling the amount of Cloud Save storage available to game developers, up to 1MB per user from 512KB, letting more game save data to be saved and synced between devices.
Google says that three out of every four Android users are playing games, and that number can certainly increase if platforms like Google Play Games improve the experience for users. Hopefully with these new changes — and more to come, surely — even more developers will take advantage of the new gaming features.
