The Google Play Games service has been confirmed ahead of an official reveal at the company's developer conference, Google I/O. An update for popular game Eufloria HD that has appeared on the Google Play store has spilled the beans.
The app, which has just been updated (15 May), lists the rumoured new gaming features in its What's New section on its Google Play listing.
"Greetings, dear seedlings. The Growers have provided new features and bugfixes in the long-awaited version 1.0.9:
- Google Play Games achievements have been added!
- Autosave has been dramatically improved!
- Fixed autosave launch issue on demo version
- Various performance improvements
We hope you enjoy using Google Play Games to save and share achievements!"
The new service, which is looking to take on Apple's Game Center and Windows Phone 8's Games Hub, is expected to add a number of social elements to gaming on Android.
Previous leaks have suggested that gamers will be able to manage everything socially using Google+ with synced save games also being supported so you can play across multiple devices.
Matchmaking and achievements (as listed by Eufloria) are also on the cards.
