Play, record & share gameplay videos in Android games
Mar 15, 2016 6:04 PM –
At GDC, Google enabled a feature that allows developers integrating Google Play Games to easily record gameplay, even trim the video and upload to YouTube. Note: it is not live streaming like in Google’s own YouTube Gaming app. However, for gamers interested in streaming their gaming videos this is huge as it eliminates running secondary apps or hardware to achieve the same goal. Similar to the popular live steaming craze on PC, you can use the front-facing camera on the device to record yourself while playing. The ease of use on a mobile device solves a huge problem mobile game streamers face.
I’m interested to see whether more game developers will integrate and how well gamers will receive the feature.
