Google is boasting about the launch of its Play services platform, a development that will allow third-party Android developers.
Google Play services has started to roll out and should arrive on virtually all Android 2.2+ devices with the Google Play Store in the very near future. At that point, all those devices will have new tools for working with OAuth 2.0 tokens. This is an example of the kind of agility in rolling out new platform capabilities that Google Play services provides.
The goal for Google, naturally, is to inspire Android developers to integrate other Google products into their apps.
Google says the Play services launch will fully take place over the course of the next week.
“Please wait for us to post that the rollout is complete before launching any apps on the store which use Google Play services,” the Internet search giant said this week.
