Rolling Out In Stages To All Google+ Members

The game button is available at the top of your stream (where profile and other tabs are). Google+ games are relegated on a separate page, a feature that will let their users to avoid the Facebook commonly annoying games notification like : Peter has just harvested five crops, Helen just bought a pig or John needs help moving his lawn. This means users have full control of when to see games, how to play them and to whom to share their experiences with.

For Google+ users who are not interested in playing games, well…. you can always ignore the games tab.

Google+ games are not yet available to countries outside of US. Google said they are looking forward to making them fully available to everyone in Google+ soon.
