Google Play Games update for Android lets users record and share gameplay

Google is expanding the reach of gameplay video to the mobile platform with the latest update to the Google Play Games app for Android. It allows anyone to record and comment on any game in the Google Play store and then upload that footage to share with others.

Google says:

It's simple. In the Play Games app, select any game you want to play, then tap the record button. You can capture your gameplay in 720p or 480p, and choose to add video of yourself and commentary via your device's front facing camera and microphone. When you're done recording, you can quickly edit and upload your video to YouTube.

This new feature is being rolled out first for US and UK residents, but will expand to more countries later. This update is similar to the one that Google added to its YouTube Gaming app earlier in October, except that Google Play Games does not yet have live streaming gameplay features.

The Google Play Games update should be rolling out shortly through the Google Play Store.
