Google plans certification program for Android video gaming phones


It’s working on Device Accreditation program.

Google is developing a Game Gadget Accreditation program to make sure that future video gaming smart devices satisfy minimum standards and pack sufficient power to act predictably for Android developers. Google hasn’t revealed the program yet, however XDA Developers acquired documents laying out new requirements for producers. In one area, Google information the new Game Gadget Certification technical requirements, which makers will have to meet in order to state an Android gadget is accredited and game-ready.

According to the file, the requirements are indicated to ensure that “video game developers do not face unforeseen throttling, lost CPU cores, or other odd system habits.” Devices should support version 1.1 of the Vulkan Graphics API, enable apps to allocate at least 2.3 GB of memory and meet other requirements.

It’s understandable that Google would wish to set some requirements for mobile video gaming devices. Mobile video gaming has actually ended up being the greatest gamer in the computer game market, earning almost half of the industry’s worldwide income in 2018. Games like Call of Responsibility and Fortnite are blurring the once clear lines between mobile and PC or console video games. Producers are catching on, and we have actually seen flagship gaming phones from ASUS, Black Shark, Razer and Nubia. We have actually also discovered that gaming hardware is risky business.

As XDA explains, Google hasn’t publicly announced the Video game Gadget Certification program, and there aren’t any gadgets on the marketplace that declare the accreditation. However there’s a likelihood Google will reveal more about the program in the near future.
