Late last year, Google surprised us by announcing that it would be bringing Google Play Games to Windows sometime in 2022, enabling play android games on pc officially.
The time has come, at least the first beta version in a few regions, where users can already register. In the rest of the world, it is also possible to express your interest to be notified of its availability, in addition to having more details on its operation, minimum requirements included.
Android Games on Windows
Android games are officially coming to Android, starting with a limited trial
This initial release gives us more details on how the thing will work and which games will be available initially. In addition to various Korean titles, the beta kicks off with ‘State of Survival: The Zombie Apocalypse’, ‘Dragon Mania Legends’, ‘Asphalt 9: Legends’, ‘War Planet Online: MMO Game’, ‘Cash Frenzy™ – Casino Machines ‘, ‘Township Summoners’ War: Sky Arena’, ‘Cookie Run: OvenBreak’, ‘Rise of Empires: Ice and Fire’, ‘Magic Rush: Heroes’, ‘Last Shelter: Survival’, ‘Idle Heroes’ and ‘¡Top War: Battle Game’.
As we can see in the promotional video, the system will be quite similar to having Google Play on Windows, with the difference that what we will see and be able to download will only be games. These games are specifically prepared for large screens and to be mouse and keyboard controlled.
Another fundamental part of Google Play Games for Windows is that game progress is synchronized
Android games will be available for Windows, with Mac support still up in the air. We now have the list of official minimum requirements. They are not too demanding, except maybe the need to have an SSD hard drive. These are the minimum requirements:
Windows 10 (v2004)
Solid State Drive (SSD)
8 logical core processor
8 GB RAM
20 GB of available storage space
Windows administrator account
Hardware virtualization must be enabled
Compatible PC and Setup
As we mentioned earlier, the beta begins in South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan and will reach other locations from 2022. Google tells us that there will be changes in the Google Play Games mobile app, and it is that this name will refer to the application for PC, with a rather different approach than for mobile.
