Through the Android Developers blog, Google has made a new announcement about support for Android games on Windows. Google’s works come to compete with those of Microsoft with the Amazon Appstore. Here is the latest information.
At the start of 2022, Google launched a beta version of Google Play Games only for certain Asian countries (South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan). As we approach the end of the year, the American company has put a new beta version online, while we could have expected a stable version. However, Google is starting to open the floodgates and offer this solution to other countries! Even if France does not yet have the right to “Google Play Games on Windows” (and Google has not given a date)this beta test is available in America (to the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil) as well as to other countries in Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines).
This version gives access to a set of 85 mobile games accessible directly from Windowsin native mode. Google cites the following games for example: 1945 Air Force, Blade Idle, Cookie Run: Kingdom, and Evony: The King’s Return. For the experience to be complete, Google says gamepads, keyboards, and mice will be supported. What is particularly interesting is the fact that the experience is based on Google Play Games since this will allow players to sync their progress between PC and smartphone.
Compared to the Windows Subsystem for Android solution offered by Microsoft, this one supports Windows 10 (from v2004) and Windows 11. At the hardware level, you must also have 8 GB of RAM, a CPU with at least 4 cores, and 20 GB of storage space on an SSD disk.
While waiting for a stable version, you can enjoy Android apps on Windows using “Windows Subsystem for Android + Amazon Appstore”. My tutorial on this subject is available:
It remains to be seen whether we will be entitled to a stable version by the end of the year…
