Now it’s happened. Selected users can play games through a new page added to the interface.


Accessible via a new button beside the search bar, the games page provides users with the scoop on the titles their friends are enjoying as well as any invites that have been received. There is also an “accomplishments” feature which, unsurprisingly, makes it possible for players to earn virtual trophies while playing Google+ games and show them off to friends.

    I tried out Angry Birds today (being a huge AB fan) but I couldn't get the main game to start and there was no audio!! Anyone else experiencing these problems?  

    But the other part of the game worked where you go head to head with other players!  That is brilliant.

      Try it out with the latest Chrome and Flash. The audio doesn't work in Debian for me.
