Following an earlier announcement in December, Google has introduced Android games on Windows PCs. Currently, it is only in beta in three countries.
Google Play Games on PC
Android games have officially come to Windows as Google launched a beta version of its gaming app. For the first time, PC owners will officially be able to play popular games like Mobile Legends, Three Kingdoms, and Summoners War.
In the first stage of the launch, the limited Google Play Games is only available to players in three countries. PC gamers in Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan can access the app by signing up for the beta program.
Arjun Dayal, Group Product Manager for Google Play Games assures potential users that they will experience easy, smooth gaming.
“Players can easily browse, download, and play their favorite mobile games on their PCs while taking advantage of larger screens with mouse and keyboard inputs,” he said. “No more losing your progress or achievements when switching between devices; it just works with your Google Play Games profile!”
Android games on PC are hardly a novelty. Solutions like Bluestacks and Android x86 are several years old. However, this is Google’s first official step in this direction. It released the minimum PC requirements that include:
- Windows 10 (v2004)
- Solid state drive (SSD)
- Gaming-class GPU
- 8-core CPU
- 8 GB of RAM
- 20 GB available storage
The mobile gaming industry is booming and is a major driving force for video gaming in general. Google is looking to capitalize on that as it pushes Android games to PC users. With its new Windows app, the tech giant hopes to boost a gaming ecosystem already accessed by 2.5 billion active users.
