Google Games Drops Google+ Requirement

Google has made it easier for owners of Android devices to sign-in to and use Google Games. Moving forward, players will only have to sign-in once per account, rather than once per game, and players no longer need to have a Google+ account to use Play Games services. Google has been slowly dropping the Google+ requirement from its services over the last year. "We're taking [these] steps to reduce sign-in friction and unnecessary permission requests for players," explained Google. "Once a user signs in for first time, new games will generally be able to sign-in without any user interaction." In order to make this happen, Google is changing the Games API and suggests developers check out the new permissions model. While the move does ease some pain points for end users, developers are the real beneficiaries. Erasing hurdles in the sign-in process means people who've downloaded a game are more likely to play it.
