Glass software teardown indicates Google planning 'extensive multiplayer gaming service'

We know that Google has been toying around with developing its own games for Android devices but a new report from Android Police indicates the company may be looking to expand even further into the gaming realm. Essentially, Android Police conducted a teardown of the MyGlass companion app for Google Glass and found “what looks like the entire Google Games Service feature list.” Android Police makes clear that this gaming service will not run through Glass but speculates that “the Glass team accidentally shipped the full suite of Google Play Services with their new app, which is not normal.”

Among other things, the MyGlass app contains software for both real-time and turn-based multiplayer games, in-game chats, leader boards and multiplayer invitations. Android Police concludes that “Google is going to take on multiplayer gaming in a big way” and is “developing a plug-in gaming service that handles every common multiplayer feature gamers have come to expect.”
