Google+ Gets Games

It was only a matter of time before Google+ would start expanding its offering to users.

The first addition being rolled out to users is games, which are accessible via the subtle new button in the interface:

A new icon on the far right is for games in Google+

So what’s on offer?

On my own account I’m seeing a range of 16 games including a couple of titles from Zynga and of course “Angry Birds”:

As soon as you click on a game to play it you get a fairly clear warning message telling you that the game is “social” and that your activity may be visible to others:

The next screen isn’t that different from the type of permissions dialogue you’d get on other social networks, though the wording is possibly a bit clearer (though I might be imagining that):

So what will the next addition to Google+ be?
