Gaming can bring people together, which is why we’re committed to making the gaming experience fun and engaging for everyone. You can earn rewards for playing your favorite games on Play, connect with a passionate community of gamers on YouTube, discover new titles you'll love through Ads, and enjoy secure, seamless gameplay powered by Cloud.

This week at the Google for Games Developer Summit, we unveiled a suite of new tools and product features for developers and gamers. With these updates, developers can take their games to the next level so players like you can experience even more immersive worlds and have new ways to interact with your favorite titles. Here's a look at what’s new.

1. Play Pass gets even better

Starting today, Google Play Pass subscribers in select markets will receive in-game items and discounts on popular games like EA SPORTS FC™ Mobile, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, MONOPOLY GO! and Roblox. This is offered in addition to our current catalog of over 1,000 ad-free games and apps, so you get even more value at the same monthly price

2. New ways to engage with games you love

It’s easier than ever to discover exclusive promotions, in-game items and what’s new in your downloaded games in the Google Play Store. Starting today1, you’ll see the latest YouTube videos of some popular games directly on the Games tab and store listing page so you never miss a beat when it comes to your favorite games.

Additionally, AdMob is transforming in-game advertisements into interactive elements that blend into the game world. Instead of pop-ups or video breaks during gameplay, you can choose to engage with integrated ads or simply continue playing.

3. More ways to sign in and save your progress

We're making it easier for developers to incorporate multiple sign-in options with Play Games Services so you can use your preferred sign-in method. Plus, all of your game progress and achievements will follow you so you can pick up where you left off2 — no matter what device you signed in from.

4. More PC games from top developers

Google Play Games will expand support for native PC games. This means you’ll be able to discover and play a larger selection of games designed specifically for PC directly through Google Play. Some of the most popular PC games are already available, including Lineage2M, Odin: Valhalla Rising, Genshin Impact and Dragonheir: Silent Gods, and we’re excited to offer players more ways to experience top games across mobile and PC3.
