Google – the reigning champ of search engines – announced today that they’re planning on expanding their reach in the mobile game industry. The statement came with an early developer preview of their new toolchain designed to assist devs in the process of porting their Google Chrome apps to iOS and Android platforms. Any app developer with a Chrome game or application can opt to test this latest feature from Google.
The main goal of this launch is to aid Chrome devs in increasing their apps’ overall reach and gain more exposure across popular mobile platforms. Players will be able to access their favorite Chrome games on-the-go via their Android or iPhone. Currently the toolchain is in developer preview mode, devs are encouraged to check it out and post on their experience on the forum, Stack Overflow or G+ Developers page.
We’ll all have to wait and see if Google Chrome’s transition to mobile will make an impact or not on the mobile game industry. However with this tool devs are being presented with a potentially lucrative opportunity.
