I've been experiencing a problem with the 'Play Games' app from Google on my tablet.

When I go to my profile, I see a message showing me

Your Game Profile is hidden
Touch to change this setting


In order to make it public, I touch the option, and press the Make Public button. Then, I see a popup saying that my profile is being updated and then a toast appears telling that my profile has been updated.

However, when I go back and re-visit my profile, the message still persists meaning that my profile is still hidden.

Also, my friend told me that he can't see me in his 'Players' list even though he follows me on Google+. This means that my profile is not public.

So, How do I make my profile public?

My tablet is running Android Kitkat 4.4.2 and has all the apps (Including Google Play Games) updated.

  • My Google Play App is now the latest version and now I'm not facing this problem.

  • Sounds like a permission issue, where unless you have root it reverts regardless of what you have set

In the About me section of your google profile is where you can make your profile public or private.
