The Best Online Games for Android

It can be difficult to find quality apps and games on the Google Play Store, which makes it easy to waste a lot of time searching for that perfect game or useful tool. Still, it’s worth checking out the latest Android games to see what’s out there, especially if you own an Android tablet or smartphone. This list of the best online games for Android will help you decide what to download next.

1) Tic Tac Toe

Tic Tac Toe is an all-time classic that has been enjoyed by children and adults alike since ancient times. Tic Tac Toe, or noughts and crosses, as it’s also known, is a two-player game in which players take turns marking their opponent’s spaces in order to form a line of three in any direction. The player who succeeds in doing so first wins. Due to its simplicity, Tic Tac Toe lends itself well to early play training and makes for an engaging online game on mobile phones such as smartphones and tablets such as iPads and Samsung Galaxy devices. If you’re looking for a fun way to pass time when you’re bored, then give Tic Tac Toe online with friends a try!

2) Scrabble

The best place to play Scrabble online is on Facebook. While it’s not officially affiliated with Hasbro, it’s still a lot of fun, and you can play with friends or random people. Unfortunately, since it’s on Facebook there isn’t an app, so if you’re playing off your phone or tablet you’ll have to log in via the mobile web. Still, if Scrabble is your game of choice then there’s nothing better than Facebook. Who knew that Farmville was just a prelude?

3) Chess

Chess is a great game to play with friends, so it’s no surprise that there are online chess games available for Android. When playing with friends in real life, things can get heated and emotions can run high, but when playing Chess on your mobile device you’ll never need to worry about that. You can play against anyone in the world and enjoy yourself while doing it. If you play online, you can even avoid running into dishonest players who will try and cheat their way to a win. These days cheating isn’t difficult either—there are plenty of programs designed to let players see other people’s screens while they take their turn. With an online Chess game there are none of these problems to deal with.

4) Backgammon

Nowadays, a lot of people prefer playing online games over offline ones because it is easier and more convenient. Backgammon, also known as narde or tables, is one of these games. It originated in Egypt about 3,000 years ago. It has three major variants: backgammon (the most common variant), narde (played in Iran), and tablut (an indigenous game played in Sweden). Backgammon can be played with two or four players. It involves dice rolling, moving checkers around a board, and playing pieces to specific points on each player’s side of the board. The goal is to move all your checkers off your side of the board before your opponent does.

5) Checkers

An online game (or app) called tic tac toe is a great game to play with friends because it’s fast-paced and doesn’t require much concentration or hand-eye coordination. Tic tac toe can be challenging at first, but once you figure out all of its nuances, you’ll have fun playing against your friends. This simple strategy game is one of those classic games that everyone knows how to play, but it still gets people thinking. Tic tac toe is just as interesting if you win or lose! Playing tic tac toe on your phone can be addicting because it’s super easy to log in and pick up where you left off.


I’m a huge fan of playing games on my smartphone, and Android has some of my favorites. I like to play Tic Tac Toe on it all of the time, but I also like to do math problems with friends online. If you’re looking for ways to pass time while you’re stuck in line or taking public transportation, then I definitely recommend that you try out some fun, easy games on your phone. It doesn’t get much better than getting paid to play games!
