As with most Google I/O events that have happened so far, we get a lot of goodies announced for us to enjoy but there is always at least one service that gets an announcement that it will be shutting down and this year it will be Google+ Games. The service wasn't exactly the most popular one Google has launched in the past but with the birth of Google Play Games, there really isn't much of a need for Google+ Games at all.
Another big announcement at Google I/O 2013 this morning during the opening keynote was that the developer console now has a slew of new features for developers to take advantage of. While all of the new features are great, the biggest one has to be the ability to roll out beta versions of your game or application.
The rumors regarding Google's apparent announcement of a 'Game Center' style of service called Google Play Games has now officially been announced during the opening Keynote at Google I/O 2013. All of the features we had thought would make it into the service has indeed been confirmed as well.
Google I/O 2013 is about to begin and Google is planning to stream a fair amount of this conference live on the internet. Well for everyone who didn't get to go to this year's conference, you can at least watch a good amount of it live. So we've decided to embed Google's new live streaming widget right here so you can watch the live streams from Google I/O 2013 while also following all the Android gaming news you usually read right here.
