Google Play Games gets a minor update to version 1.6

Google Play Games

Google has just updated the Play Games service on Android to version 1.6. This is a small update and won’t change a lot of things, so don’t get your hopes up.

It now has a slightly re-modified navigation bar and the ability to be notified whenever there’s a gift sent to you or friend requests. So it’s not exactly a massive change whichever way you look at it, but a welcome addition.

Below is the changelog for the update:

  • Redesigned slide-out nav bar – ‘My Activity’ replaced with linked profile pic
  • Notifications for gifts and requests
  • ‘Matches’ is now ‘Inbox

You can either wait for the update notification to pop up on your device or hit the apk download link below accessed by the folks over at Android Police. The app requires devices running on Android 4.0 or above to be functioning so keep that in mind before sideloading the apk manually. There are no security issues with this apk as it is coming directly from Google and has its unique cryptographic signature as well.
