You can play now Google Play Games on Windows – if you live in the right country. Google has launched a registration-based beta offering access to “popular” Play Games on Windows computers in Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan. If you go in, you can jump into headlines like Mobile legends: Bang Bang and Sumoners War without reaching for an Android phone or Chromebook. You can take advantage of a larger screen and additional input options, and your progress will continue to be synced across platforms.
Google said it would offer details on later beta versions and extensions “soon”. He had previously committed to the generic introduction of 2022.
This still leaves many players without access, and the current catalog will not delight players who want to play any Google Play title they want. Nevertheless, it’s a big milestone for Google. Although the company has long made Google Play media services available for Windows (if usually via the web), games were the obvious exception. Not that loose requirements will necessarily hurt Google – the goal is to provide a flawless jump from an Android phone or Chrome OS device, so the company wins no matter how you play.
