Flash video games could be set to lastly die in 2020 when Google kills its final help for Adobe’s growing old plugin, however that does not imply that Chrome is dropping its sense of enjoyable. A brand new Recreation of the Day card has been noticed in testing on the developer channel launch of Chrome for Android, offering a regularly-changing shortcut to play Google-made informal video games on-line. The titles seem like from these constructed into Google’s earlier doodles, websites, and providers.
The brand new card seems within the “Articles for you” Uncover/Feed-like part on the brand new tab/homepage display for some on latest Dev channel releases of Chrome for Android, seen slightly below.
Recreation of the Day playing cards for the final three days.
Playing cards are labeled with a sport’s title, a picture preview of the sport, what we assume is the title of the developer (Google in all noticed circumstances to this point), and a “Play now” button that takes you, as you’d in all probability anticipate, to the sport. At this time’s instance is Tic Tac Toe, however prior video games have included Minesweeper and a title known as Ghost Rush from a 2018 Halloween Doodle.
Sadly, there is not a centralized record of Google-made browser video games we will discover that may embody future titles, although you may seek for video games in Search with phrases like “Play Tic Tac Toe” to see those who have already appeared, and a pop-out menu contains some others we would anticipate sooner or later, like PAC-MAN and Solitaire, although it would not embody any earlier Doodle-based video games.
It may very well be unrelated, however Google’s been engaged on some kind of video games hub underneath the codename “pleasure” for some time. This new Recreation of the Day card might hook up with that effort in a roundabout way.
