Google Plus seems to be ready to take on social media giants like Facebook on their home turf. The social media division of the search engine giant has made 16 interactive games available for users, including the phenomenal Angry Birds. The games will be playable in either single player or multiplayer modes (wherever applicable), and very soon may be available to mobile users as game apps, as well.
In the initial stages, only a handful of lucky users of the social media network will be able to access these games via a special icon on their profile pages. As time progresses, however, the titles will obviously be available to every user. In fact, Google has revealed its plans to allow cross-platform support for these games, thereby ensuring that mobile users can play a round of game just about any time with their friends, even if the latter are using computers.
Could this act as just another nail on the coffin for other social media websites? Only time can tell, but one thing is for sure. Google Plus is definitely here to stay, and given the possibilities they can afford to explore (integrating office suites with social media, for instance), it is likely to be around for quite a long time to come.
