Are there any plans to support Google Play Games for Login and Linking?
However switching to (or additionally supporting) GPGS-Authentication would make much more sense:
- The need to ask for profile-access permission is not self-evident for the players and we would rather avoid it
- Using Play Games (silent-)SignIn and avoiding the request of any unneeded Scopes is listed as 'Required' by Google on their GPGS-checklist ( https://developers.google.com/games/services/checklist - Items 1.2 and 1.1). Quote:
Required: Minimum requirements that must be implemented for your game to be considered Google Play games services-compatible
- When Google reviewed our game for a potential feature, they told us that this is one of their mandatory requirements for considering a feature
- Play Games SignIn is really the state of the art method used by most bigger mobile games nowadays and it just makes sense for a games backend like PlayFab to support it :)
