In a day that seems to be all about Google, the company has released yet another new and exciting product. Google has just launched a new Android app named Google Play Games, which will serve as a central location for social gaming as well as game and content discovery. We first heard mention of this new app at Google I/O but details were a bit scarce and we almost forgot all about it.

The new app aggregates all of your installed games into a single location where you can see earned achievements, multiplayer engagements, and a list of frequent opponents and public leaderboards. The app is very similar to Apple's Game Center, which has been around for almost 3 years now. Unlike the Game Center which uses your Apple ID for identification, Play Games requires a connection through Google to update your account with new achievements and data.
