Google Play Games sign-in and permissions process easing up

Advertisement

Play a lot of games on your Android phone? You’re probably in it to win it and that means getting onto the scoreboards. You’re probably familiar with signing into Play Games every time you open up a game. Well, since Google’s been reforming its permissions processing on Android Marshmallow and the Google Play Store, it should come as little surprise that the streamlining should carry over to here.

The Android Developers Blog announced changes to its Games API to lessen the stops and stutters of the general entertainment experience. That slow-as-heck Play Games start-up prompt, for example? Once you sign-in to any game, that’s all you’ll see of it ever again, at least on that device for that Google account. Google+ account integration’s been dropped, so the sign-in process has also been stepped down.

For accounts already Google+-integrated, the login process will retain your Google+ info. New accounts will use a different ID tag.
