Google Arcade

Do you remember Google Buzz? It’s okay if you don’t; this web-based service was launched all the way back in early 2010 and was discontinued in late 2011 after failing to achieve the same recognition as other social media platforms. It was replaced by Google+…which, as most of us know, also never really took off the way Google expected it to. However, as the old saying goes, “Third time’s a charm.” Could Google be gearing up to give this sort of venture another try?

In today’s video, we’ll take a peek at Google Arcade, one of the company’s latest projects. Details are still pretty sketchy at this point, but the scant information currently available seems to suggest that it will be a social network based around gaming. With the surging popularity of online co-op play and e-sports, as well as the success of the HQ Trivia app, it’ll be interesting to see if they’ve finally found a niche and have a hit on their hands. We’ll be keeping our ears to the ground for the latest information on this topic!
