Google+ games - moved up to Level 2

Two improvements to the gaming experience on Google+ are now rolling out to users: the ability to add your own comments to personalize games posts, and an improved Games stream (with realtime updates and keyboard shortcuts.)

You now also get notifications for games invitations and gifts in your Google+ bar. If you want to stop seeing these, you can simply click “Mute game notifications.”

Thank you for playing games on Google+ and all your feedback. As always, let us know what you think in the comments!

Hi, I’m Satyajeet Salgar, Product Manager for games on Google+.

We’ve had a blast with you over the last six week whether its been build building our empires, launching angry birds, playing poker, or just earning gold coins. But we’re just getting started. I’m thrilled to announce two new features that we believe will make all of this even more fun.

Let me just show you....

First, you can now add a comment on top of any update you post from a game in Google+ and personalize these updates.

For example, here I click post, add my comment, and now share it to my Games stream.

Second, when conversations are happening on the games stream, you can watch the updates and comments unfold in realtime. Also to those of you that need to read the games stream quickly, keyboard shortcuts now work as well.

Remember, that we’ve also made it easier for you to find game notifications. When someone sends you a gift or invitation to play, you’ll see a notification appear in your Google+ bar at the top of the page.

If you don’t like seeing game notifications in your Google+ bar, it’s easy to turn them off by simply tapping “Mute game notifications”

And remember, we also added a couple of new games to Google+ this week: Global Warfare from Kabam and CityVille from Zynga. We hope you really enjoy both of them.

Finally thanks for your feedback, and please keep it coming! It helps us a lot. We have a lot of exciting changes ahead.

Alright; enough talk, let’s just play.
