Corona Labs is pleased to announce the immediate availability of a new, updated Google Play Games Services plugin. This plugin in a complete rewrite of the version one of the plugin using the latest GPGS core libraries and dependencies.

One of the key reasons for the GPGS v2 plugin, besides staying with modern underlying SDK’s is support for preventing Google rejections for using invalid login scopes. The previous version of the underlying GPGS SDK contained Google Plus login scope which has been deprecated. The new version has this removed.

The GPGS v2 plugin should be a drop in replacement for the GPGS v1 plugin. First, visit the Marketplace and activate the plugin, then simply update your build.settings to include the plugin using:

settings = 
    plugins = 
        ["plugin.gpgs.v2"] = 
            publisherId = "com.coronalabs",
            supportedPlatforms =  ["android"] = true, 
        }
    }
}

And where you require the plugin in your lua code:

local gpgs = require( "plugin.gpgs.v2" )

This is a completely new version of the plugin and you should fully test your app against the code. If you have questions about the new plugin, please check out our documentation. Join us in the community forums to discuss this new plugin.
