Google is evaluating bringing some of the games available on Android phones to Windows PCs. To that end it is developing the Google Play Games app, which will be available throughout the year 2022. Using this app, users will be able to run the games available there on laptops, tablets and desktops.
Throughout 2022 Google will launch an app that will allow you to play from a Windows PC video games available for Android phones
The company’s intention with this launch is to make it easier for users to play their video games from different devices and in different environments. So far, these games could be accessed from tablets, mobile phones and Chromebook laptops. The idea is that Windows computers will also have access to them.
As Google has made known, this application is being developed by the company on an exclusive basis. That is, Google would not have closed no agreement with Microsoft or BlueStacks to jointly develop the application.
At the moment the application is in the testing phase, though Google showed a small preview of how it works during The Game Awards event. No one at the company has given more details about how the application will work or how it can emulate the look and feel of Android apps on Windows. The only thing that has been advanced is that the games will run from the device itself and not streaming from the cloud.
Greg Hartrell, director of Google’s video games area, has explained that there will be a native Windows app that will distribute the company itself. This app will be compatible with the Windows 10 operating system and earlier versions. At the moment, Google is not considering also developing a specific app that is compatible with the Windows 11 operating system.
