“We want to make playing games online just as fun, and just as meaningful, as playing in real life,” the announcement says. Titles include Angry Birds, Bejeweled Blitz, Zynga Poker and Sudoku.
Google has launched a new Google Plus Platform Blogto help encourage more.
Google seems a bit concerned about the distraction factor, though, and it wants to make sure these games don’t get in the way of your +1ing, sharing and other important Google Plus business.
“Games in Google Plus are there when you want them and gone when you don’t,” the announcement says. “If you’re not interested in games, it’s easy to ignore them.”
