Google Play Store games

In the recent news, tech giant, Google has announced its plans to bring the Google Play Store games Windows 10 and 11 next year. The latest Google app will be available in 2022, developed by Google to enable games from Google Play to run on Windows laptops, tablets, and PCs.


“Starting in 2022, players will be able to experience their favorite Google Play Store games on more devices: seamlessly switching between a phone, tablet, Chromebook, and soon, Windows PCs,” says Greg Hartrell, Google’s product director of games on Android and Google Play.


The App for Google Play Store Games on Windows is Solely Developed by Google 


Furthermore, Google spokesperson Alex Garcia-Kummert states that the corporation has developed this application on its own, which means Google hasn’t allied with Microsoft, BlueStacks, or others here. The upcoming app will further enable players to resume games on a desktop PC, after playing them on a phone, tablet, or Chromebook.

Currently, Google is simply teasing the app during The Game Awards tonight, with a promised release window of sometime next year. It’s not yet clear what technology Google is using to emulate Google Play Store games on Windows, but games will run locally instead of streaming from the cloud.


The New App Will Support Both Windows 10 and 11


“This will be a native Windows app distributed by Google, which will support Windows 10 and up,” explains Hartrell. “It will not involve game streaming.” Google’s app won’t depend on any special integration with Windows 10 and 11, and the company will also distribute the app itself.


Google’s announcement about the integration of Google Play Store games with Windows comes months after Microsoft began testing Android apps on Windows 10 and 11 PCs. Microsoft has developed an underlying Windows Subsystem for Android, which is competent in running Android apps from a variety of sources. 


The software titan has collaborated with Amazon to allow Windows users natively install games and apps from the Amazon App store, but native Google Play support won’t be available officially through Microsoft’s feature.
