A new document reveals the Google’s Game Device Certification program


Game Device Certification

From the last couple of years, there is a massive rise in the popularity of gaming on mobile devices. Smartphone makers are putting gigabytes of RAM and making high-refresh-rate phone displays to keep up with the growing gaming industry. To ensure the future of gaming on mobile devices, Google is working on a Game Device Certification program.

XDA-Developers shared a copy of Google’s recent GMS (Google Mobile Services) Requirements for OEMs and ODMs, which enumerates the requirements the smartphone makers must meet for pre-installing GMS as per the commercial agreement on their devices. In section13 of the copy document, it notes the Android Platform Requirements, which the devices must meet for getting approval to use GMS and subsection 13.14 details the new Gaming Device Certification requirements. The phone manufacturers must attain these requirements to declare Gaming Device Certification.

Below is the copy where the requirements are mentioned for certification, which the OEMs and ODM must fulfill.

It also appears that Google has already started to build a team that will engage with phone manufacturers and SoC makers to educate them on the upcoming requirements. Here is the job listing which confirms it.

However, this new Game Device Certification program has not publicly announced yet. It would be interesting to see which devices will be going to approve of this.
