How to play Google Play Games on PC?
Google recently unveiled the launch of its Google Play Games app for PC, allowing Windows 10 and 11 users to play Android games on their desktops. This native Windows application serves as an Android gaming hub, but it does not involve cloud game streaming. Additionally, Google Play Games enables players to earn rewards by collecting Google Play Points, which can be earned and redeemed on both mobile devices and PCs.
The app promises seamless gameplay sessions between various devices, including mobile phones, tablets, Chromebooks, and Windows PCs. Players can browse, download, and play mobile Android games with mouse and keyboard inputs.
While the Google Play Games app is currently in beta form and not available everywhere, it has been officially launched in several countries and regions worldwide, including Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and the US. Google aims to expand its service to more regions later this year.
To access the Google Play Games for PC app, users must download the beta version of the app from the Google Play Games for PC webpage if they live in one of the countries where it is available. At launch, players will have access to over 100 games, including Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Summoners War, State of Survival: The Joker Collaboration, Three Kingdoms Tactic, and many more.
Note that Google Play Games is not yet available for Mac.
