Android Multiplayer Will Stop Working Soon—New Multiplayer Coming Soon

On March 31, 2020, Google is shutting down the multiplayer component of their Play Games Services. Because X-Plane Mobile on Android depends on Google Play for multiplayer, Android users will no longer be able to do multiplayer flights as of that date.
