Next Year, Google will bring Android games to Windows PCs

Google is planning to bring Android games to Windows PCs for the first time next year.

During Thursday’s Game Awards, the business announced the news in a short video. In the video, Google said, “Get ready to play your favorite mobile games on your PC.”

According to The Verge, Google aims to bring the games to Windows PCs via a new Google Play Games app for Microsoft’s operating system. Your gameplay session can also be cloud synced between devices using the same app. As a result, you’ll be able to play your games on an Android phone and then pick up where you left off on a Windows PC.

“This Google-built solution brings the best of Google Play Games to more laptops and desktops,” the company’s product director Greg Hartrell told The Verge.

The key question is how Google intends to adapt the games to Microsoft’s Windows operating system. According to a business spokesperson, PCMag: “We’ll have more information on implementation in the coming months, but for now, know that this is a new experience that will allow gamers to download and play their favorite Google Play Games on their desktop. There will be no game streaming. Google will be the one to release the app and games.”

Emulators for Windows can already be used to run Android games on the operating system. The new Google Play Games app, on the other hand, is set to provide an even better experience, especially with cloud syncing.

The announcement comes as Microsoft prepares to support Android apps in Windows 11. The corporation is doing it, though, without using the Google Play Store. Instead, Microsoft will deliver Android apps through Amazon’s mobile app store.

Microsoft is introducing a new component in Windows 11 called “Windows Subsystem for Android,” which is designed to load the Android operating system over a Hyper-V virtual machine. The feature is currently being tested by Windows 11 Insiders.
