In it's latest announcement, the release of this Game service by Google is slated to enable users to continue saved games across platforms, enable achievements for users, and of course, leaderboards across your circle of friends on Google+.

As well, an announcement of integrating comprehensive multiplayer services that will allow Peer-to-Peer services hosted by Google servers, allowing multiplayer games to continue with low latency.
