During EA’s GamesCom press event, it was announced that Origin would soon be available on the Android platform. Its function and abilities on Android were not announced, but it is safe to assume it will compete heavily with Steam.
If you currently use Origin, then this may come as good news since you will have another way to access community forums, browse gaming titles, exclusive content, videos, etc. However, if you frequently use EA games on Android, then you may want to consider signing up for an Origin account since EA could very easily make Android games available through download in its Origin app only.
As a side note, the Origin gaming platform will debut on other platforms including: Mac, Facebook, and Smart TV. As soon as EA reveals additional information on Origin launching on Android, we will keep you updated.
