Games for Android are finally making their way to Windows

Games for Android are finally making their way to Windows

Google officially launched beta testing for Android games on Windows a couple of days ago but the service was limited to 12 games in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea (including games such as Asphalt 9, Gardenscapes and Homescapes). Android games are finally starting to arrive on Windows

Microsoft said last year that Android apps would be supported natively in Windows 11, although this functionality has been postponed multiple times since then. Microsoft announced in August that a preview test version of the technology will be available in the “coming months,” but there was no formal support for Android apps. Finally, it appears that Windows 11 users will be able to play Android games.

Now, our colleagues at GSMArena have spotted a “Download on Windows” button on the desktop version of Google Play for Lineage2M. Clicking on it downloads an executable file for Windows. As both GSMArena and PhoneArena are located in Europe, it seems that Microsoft and Google are expanding the availability of the beta program to other regions/countries.

You can follow this link to see if the option is available in your country. By the way, here are the system requirements for beta testers who want to play Android games on Windows.Last year, Microsoft officially announced that Android apps would be natively supported in Windows 11 but this support has been subsequently delayed several times since.

Now it seems that Windows 11 users will be able to play some Android games at last.
