Even Google is abandoning Google+
Google's failed social network Google+ has received another vote of no-confidence, this time from Google.
As detailed on the Official Android Blog, gamers who want an account to record their feats will soon be offered “Gamer IDs”.
As is usual, you can give yourself an avatar or upload a photo, see yourself scale leaderboards and all the social stuff that gamers like to do in these lamentably-post-Atari-2600 days.
All of which it is today possible to do with a Google+ account.
Why's Google walking away from its own creation? The post doesn't say, but perhaps Google's just decided not to flog a dead horse.
