Last year, Google announced a new feature that lets users stream apps directly from the search engine, giving them the ability to use an app even without downloading them to their mobile device. Now, the company announced that they will be expanding the feature to Android games as well.
Similar to previous announcement, all you have to do is search for a game using Google search app. In the search results, there will be a “try now” button that lets you try a game out for up to 10 minutes without installing it. If you like the game, simply tap on the Google icon at the bottom, and install it to your phone. This is definitely a very handy tool for days when you’re bored and you wish to find a nice game to download.
On top of that, Google also introduced a new “indie corner” in the Play Store. The section will feature the best indie games, and will be updated regularly by the company. Google wish to feature the best games in the platform that preferably uses various Google Play features like leaderboards and achievements.
Finally, Google also announced that users would soon be able to live stream games directly to YouTube thanks to the Video Recording API. The gameplay will be recorded and streamed directly to YouTube with just a few simple steps. These announcements were made at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
