“Game of the week” is another way to discover games, specifically instant games to those who play without having to install anything on our mobile device. Every weekend we will receive a notification with a new game, if we want.

When the section is activated “Game of the week”, Google Play Games will show us with a warning if we want enable or disable alerts of the new instant game of the week. On the main screen of the Home tab, we will see the banner with the “Game of the week” at the top.
