    For example,when a player opens your game and logins to Google Play Games their accounts email and username is used.Now,as the developer of that game,can I preview that email he used?

    I don't think you can. User privacy basically AFAIK. If you were running your own online game service that your players logged into instead of using Google's services, think that would be a different matter.

    Can move your thread to App and Game Development if you want, might get answers from other devs there. :thumbsupdroid:

    Don't you have the email addresses of everyone who's installed your game via your developer console? I'd a chat about with with one of our other mods @scary alien a while back and I'm sure he said he can see all sorts of information about me after I'd installed one of his apps, including the post code my gmail account is linked to.

    Also, a few years back, I started receiving emails from a developer marketing their new themes/apps all because they'd picked up my email via me installing one of their apps.

    When I had paid apps in the Play Store, I used to be able to see the purchaser's email address and general location (city, zip) of the purchaser--no names, though. That was only true for paid apps--there was (is) NO information returned to me for free apps.

    I can't see that information now in my Developer Console since I'm guessing since I pulled the paid apps and only left the free versions out "there".

    Cheers!
