At the beginning of 2022, the Google announced the Play Games for PC, which takes famous games from android for desktops with Windows 10 and Windows 11. The service has 85 titles and is still in beta, but we have good news: you can now access it in Brazil.
Google Play Games was announced on January 2022. Initially, it was only available to users in South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Later, Australia and Thailand were added to the list.
Now, the program reaches seven more countries: United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore.
To play, you need to sign up for test program and install the PC application.
Google took advantage of the announcement and reduced the requirements to run the software. These are the new minimum specifications:
- Windows 10 (v2004) or higher;
- SSD with at least 10 GB free;
- 8 GB of RAM;
- Intel UHD Graphics 630 graphics card or equivalent;
- CPU with four physical cores;
- Windows administrator account;
- hardware virtualization.
For now, there is no Mac or Linux version.
Google Play Games for Windows currently has 85 titles. You may know some of them from advertisements in other apps:
- Asphalt 9: Legends
- blade idle
- Cookie Run: Kingdom
- Evony: The King’s Return
- Pirates of the Caribbean: ToW
- State of Survival: Zombie War
- WWE Supercard
The app saves game progress and syncs with other PCs and mobiles. So you continue where you left off.
Google Play Points works on PC games. Thus, you can use the points in purchases of items and subscriptions.
Google project is independent
One of the main new features of Windows 11 is the Android app support. The Google project, however, has nothing to do with this initiative.
Microsoft made a partnership with amazon to place Android apps in the system’s native store. In addition, Windows 11 has a subsystem dedicated to Android to run these programs.
In the case of Google Play Games for PC, the process is totally different. It doesn’t depend on this subsystem — so much so that it works on Windows 10, which doesn’t have this component. To play, just install the program provided by the search giant and download the desired titles.
