OnePlus Game Space goes to Play Store and adds features

OnePlus smartphones are fantastic for gaming, and the company’s “Game Space” app only makes the experience even better. Today, OnePlus has moved Game Space to the Google Play Store to provide faster updates in the future, and there are a few already in this latest version.

As spotted by XDA, OnePlus Game Space is now listed in the Google Play Store. It joins several other apps that OnePlus has separated from system updates, including OnePlus Gallery, Launcher, and Weather. This strategy allows OnePlus to deploy updates to these system apps completely independent of larger and slower system updates. It’s also something Google does with the vast majority of its apps preinstalled. OnePlus even offers a beta program!

With this latest beta update, OnePlus has also added a few new features. First, OnePlus has a direct shortcut to “Instant Games”. This pulls on Google’s library of game previews designed for advertising, but OnePlus uses them as little mini-games that users can access without downloading. This can however be disabled in the Game Space settings.

OnePlus Game Space has also added a new section for game statistics. This new section lists the total time you spent playing games on your phone over the course of a day or a few months, and also tells you the amount of battery used by these games. It’s a nice little addition for big mobile gamers! Keep in mind that you will only find these features in the beta.
