Game Dashboard is arriving in Google settings on more Pixel phones

However, it remains Pixel-exclusive


If you’re a gamer and own a Pixel 6 series phone, chances are you’re already familiar with Android’s Game Dashboard interface, packed with useful tools for taking screenshots, checking your FPS, starting a screen recording, switching between Do Not Disturb, and even streaming directly to YouTube. This dashboard became part of Google Play Services earlier this year, suggesting it may not remain a Pixel exclusive feature for long. Android 13 brought the feature to the Pixel 6a when it was still in beta, and now that the OS update is widely available, Game Dashboard is making its way to more Pixel phones.

With Android 13 now available on all compatible Pixel phones, more and more devices seem to be getting access to the Game Dashboard. We’ve heard from a few tipsters that they saw it coming recently, and Esper.io’s Mishaal Rahman tweets a similar sentiment — a quiet, seemingly widespread rollout of Google.

You can check if you have the new Game Dashboard by going to the Settings app and tapping on Google. If your phone has access to the new game tools, you’ll see a toggle here to enable them. After that, you can access Game Dashboard with the floating button that appears when you start a game on your Pixel phone.

We owe this rollout to the move to Google Play Services, but so far we still don’t see the Dashboard losing its Pixel exclusivity. Hopefully, Google will change that as more Android OEMs continue to work on their own Android 13 updates.
