Achievements & experience points (XP)
With Google Play Games, you can earn awards and experience points, and then track them all from the Play Games app .Achievements
When you're playing a game, you can earn achievements that mark your accomplishments. The more you play, the more chances you'll have to earn achievements.
Whether it's earning an achievement for a high score, completing new levels, or anything else, you can keep earning achievements as you make your way through a game.
When you earn an achievement, you'll see a pop-up overlay that shows what you've unlocked. Also, achievements can help you earn experience points (XP) on your Play Games profile.
When you get in-game achievements, you can earn experience points (XP) and levels on your Play Games profile.
When you're playing a game, you'll see a notification when you've earned XP or enough points to level up your Play Games profile. When you level up, you'll also see a notification in your mobile device's notification shade near the top of your screen and your Play Games "Inbox" menu.
You can view your XP and individual achievements on games you use with Play Games on your Play Games profile page.
For more information on how to make your Game Profile public or private, go to Play Games on your device.
