Google Play Games has managed to cross the barrier of 5,000 million downloads on Google Play, which it has achieved thanks to the fact that it is one of the applications already pre-installed on most Android phones on the market .
If a few months ago we told you that the video calling application of the American giant, Google Duo, had reached 5,000 million downloads on the Play Store, now another Google application has just reached this milestone, although in this case she has a trick.
This is Google Play Games, the American giant’s game center for Android, which in a few years has quintupled its number of installations, going from 1,000 million downloads to 5,000 million current downloads.
Google Play Games surpasses 5 billion downloads
As confirmed by the specialized media 9to5Google, the Google application store has confirmed that, during the last weekend, the Android games application, Google Play Games, exceeded 5,000 million downloads.
The achievement of this milestone should not be attributed to the popularity of this application, but rather to the fact that this application is pre-installed on the vast majority of Android mobiles on the market. It is still striking that this application has managed to quintuple its number of installations in just a few years.
Google Play Games was launched in 2013 to compete with Apple’s game center and allows you to collect all the games you have installed on your mobile in one application, keep track of all the achievements you get and it also recommends new titles to play.
