Google Glass Files Hint At Android Game Center
Developers spill the beans on chat rooms, achievements and more.
The Google Glass companion app MyGlass includes files that suggest some kind of Android Game Center functionality will be available in the future, according to a report on Android Police (via IGN)
Snooping around the Google Play Services apk file, the team at Android Police found code that supported pre-game chat rooms, achievements, leaderboards, notifications and multiplayer gaming. Ron Amadeo of Android Police had this to say on the discovery:
"It sounds like Google is going to take on multiplayer gaming in a big way. They're developing a plug-in gaming service that handles every common multiplayer feature gamers have come to expect. Developers' lives should get a whole lot easier, and multiplayer gaming on Android should get a whole lot better."
Google's AR eyewear is currently only available to a small pool of competition winners, although the device is expected to be released to the mass-market before the end of 2013.
