Google has recently launched a limited beta for Google Play Games on PC. The limited beta for the desktop application has been made available from the 19th of January, 2022 in Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan. This will allow Windows PC owners to play popular Android games like Mobile Legends, Summoners War, State of Survival, and Three Kingdoms Tactics.
Google Play Games Beta has launched in Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan
Available for players in Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan, gamers in these regions will be able to sign up to access the beta and access Google’s standalone app on Windows PCs. The tech giant is promising “seamless gameplay sessions between a phone, tablet, Chromebook and Windows PC”. This suggests that players will be able to easily resume games between multiple devices.
The launcher has been singularly built by Google. It will let players natively browse, download and play Android games from their desktop PC. Later, they can resume playing on their phone, tablet or Chromebook. Players can go from playing on a Pixel 6 to a Surface Laptop Studio and pick up right where they left off due to the progress and achievements being linked to a player’s profile. Google Play Points, part of its free-to-join rewards program can be gained, when buying apps on a PC.
Google’s initiative to take mobile games away from Android devices
Players can now easily browse, download, and play their favorite mobile games on their PCs. This could be done by taking advantage of larger screens with mouse and keyboard inputs. This was announced last year, as one of the new and interesting features coming with Windows 11.
This feature is only available now in Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan. Players in the rest of the world especially Europe and the Americas will have to wait a little longer to get access to this feature.
