Google Play Games: Android games arrive in beta on PC in three countries – L’Éclaireur Fnac

Google formalizes the arrival of Android games on Windows with the opening of a beta phase. Reserved for three countries located in Asia, it should soon be extended to other regions.

Important announcement from Google at the end of 2021, the arrival of its Android video game store on Windows is confirmed. It only took the Mountain View giant a month to start offering its Google Play Games app on Microsoft’s operating system. While the Redmond group is also planning Android apps and games on Windows 11 in partnership with Amazon, Google has also decided to try its luck.

A beta phase has been launched in South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan and “everyone who lives there will be able to register on the waiting list”. Discovered by Engadget, the information was confirmed by the head of Android, Hiroshi Lockheimer, on the social network Twitter. « Windows fans: Google Play Games Beta on your PC [est disponible] in Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan. (Everyone else, stay tuned. Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about you),” he wrote. If France is not worried yet, a page in French is already available to present the beta version of Google Play Games.

Google confirms that its app allows access to “certain mobile games” to play on the big screen of a Windows laptop or desktop. These titles can be played with keyboard and mouse with the promise of accessing more control or benefiting from better graphics. The American firm also promises “perfect synchronization” between the different devices, thus offering the possibility of starting a game on your smartphone and finding it on your PC. The rewards, called Google Play Points, are counted and can be used on the computer “just like on your mobile device.”
