Google Play Games set to bring Android games to Windows PCs in 2022


Google, during the Game Awards 2021, announced plans to bring Android games to Windows PCs. The tech giant will bring the Google Play Games platform to Windows via a standalone app next year. With this development, users will be able to play Android games on their Windows PCs directly from Google. It will also allow users to simultaneously switch between Android phones and tablets, Chromebooks and Windows PCs. It is unconfirmed whether full Google Play titles will be available when the new service arrives on PC.

Google, during the Game Awards, teased Google Play Games is coming to Windows in 2022. The tech giant’s new move will bring one of Android’s biggest gaming ecosystems to Windows PCs. It will allow gamers to access hundreds of Android titles from their desktop.

Greg Hartrell, Google’s Chief Product Officer for Games on Android and Google Play, was quoted by The Verge as saying, “Starting in 2022, gamers will be able to experience their favorite Google Play games on more devices: switch ways seamlessly between a phone, tablet, Chromebook, and soon, Windows PCs.

“This Google-built product brings the best of Google Play Games to more laptops and desktops, and we’re excited to expand our platform so gamers can enjoy their favorite Android games even more,” said added Hartrell.

Additionally, a Google spokesperson confirmed to The Verge that the company built this app on its own, which means the company’s efforts don’t rely on other companies, including Microsoft and BlueStacks. .

The upcoming app will also allow gamers to resume games on a desktop computer, after playing them on a phone, tablet or Chromebook. However, details about the technology Google uses to emulate Android apps on Windows, and which all games eventually make their way to PC, are unknown at this time.
