Today we are announcing that starting on September 20, 2017, we are discontinuing the GameCircle Social Features, which will remove the customer’s ability to maintain a list of GameCircle Friends. Additionally, certain GameCircle Friends features will be less visible to customers outside of the game play experience: customers will no longer see GameCircle achievements, Friend leaderboards, and other information from their Home screen or Games gateway experience on Fire Tablets.
The in-game experience for GameCircle will remain mostly unchanged, and no action is required on your part. However, if you have integrated the Social Service SDK methods - getFriendIds(), requestLocalPlayer(), and getBatchFriends(), starting from December 1, 2017, these methods will no longer return data. Games that use these methods can continue to call them, but data will not be flowing.
