Since about a year ago, Google has been testing its Google Play Games application for Windows, as part of which we will be able to download and play a large number of Android games from Google Play on our PCs in the near future.
With mouse and keyboard support, everything was available, without the need to mess around with any emulators. There is already a version of Windows 11 that allows you to run certain Android applications for Windows thanks to a partnership with the Amazon Appstore, but Google is also starting this initiative independently, so you will be able to run their Google Play Games application on Windows 10 as well.
We have not yet had the opportunity to participate in the beta testing of this PC application, but it has spread to new territories in recent days. At the moment, there are gamers from the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand and Australia who are able to play their favorite Android games on PC.
In other words, it could be that a significant expansion of the beta testing audience is indicative of the application being at an advanced stage of market maturity, so we from Europe may not have to wait much longer to give it a try.
If you are interested in finding out more about the application itself or the games that are going to be supported on PC, visit the official website, where you can also sign up to be notified when the beta is available. There is an opportunity here for developers who are interested in knowing more about Google Play Games for PC, and who see this as an opportunity.
Here is a list of the recommended PC requirements for participating in the beta, which we have already written about, but we thought we'd remind you: Windows 10 (v2004) Solid state drive (SSD) Gaming-class GPU 8 logical cores of CPU 8 GB of RAM 20 GB of available storage space Windows admin account Hardware virtualization must be turned on Compatible PC device and configuration Which Android game do you think you would enjoy playing the most on a bigger screen on your PC? What about using a mouse and keyboard? Would that be possible?
