The company is making the Google Play Games app available for download for a limited time for all platforms, including smartphones and tablets, in the UK and Europe, as well as in the US and Latin America.
The Google Play Store will be available for free for Android devices for the next 24 hours, while the app will be free on the Apple App Store and Windows Store.
There are no details yet as to how many Android devices will be affected, but it is not yet clear whether Google will provide the Google play games app for all devices or only those with a paid Google Play account.
“Google Play Games is one of the most popular mobile games apps in the world, and we are thrilled to offer it to all of our users across all platforms,” said Google Play CEO and co-founder Joe Ludwig in a statement.
“Google’s apps have been the lifeblood of Google Play for a long time and we have been working closely with developers to deliver a great app experience for Google Play.”
“We’re proud to offer the GooglePlay Games app to millions of users across the world who want to play games and interact with friends, family and others in a fun, safe and respectful way.”
As we roll out the first wave of Android and iOS games to millions more, we want to make sure the apps are safe, accessible and free to play on everyone.
“Google Play is currently the only platform on which users can download games, and the company has recently been looking to make the process easier by offering developers free trials.
Google has previously rolled out the Googleplay app to the Google TV app and to the Play Store for the iPad.
