Official Android Game Coming to Windows PC


Google has finally brought Android games to Windows PCs. The company will launch its Google Play Games app in 2022. It will bring Android games to Windows PCs, laptops, and tablets. Google teased the announcement during The Game Awards 2021 without providing further technical details.

Google will use its software to run apps and offer emulated Android titles and games that run natively on Windows. The app will be available for Windows 10 and 11. Previously, users had to rely on Android emulator software like Bluestacks to play mobile games on PC.

“Google Play has helped billions of people find and play their favorite games across multiple platforms, including on mobile, tablets, and ChromeOS. Starting in 2022, players will be able to experience their favorite Google Play games on more devices: seamlessly switching 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 are thrilled to expand our platform for players to enjoy their favorite Android games even more. We’ll have more to share soon!”

Android Games on PC, Mac, tablets, and TV

Google has not released specific details regarding the app. However, according to the company's "Games Future" presentation, they are planning to bring Android apps to the Mac. It seems the company will start this off by loading the best 100-125 Android games onto PC and then scaling it to a thousand games.

The app will most likely be cross-platform, allowing users to seamlessly move back and forth from phone to PC. Google's main goal is to let player users play on any screen. This includes smartphones, tablets, desktops, smart displays, and even TVs.

Microsoft has also built a Windows Subsystem for Android to run apps from multiple sources. However, it lacks native Google Play support, meaning fewer Android games and apps for Windows 11 PCs. Hopefully, the Google Play Games app can fill that void.
