In 2022, Google will let you play Android games on your Windows PC or laptop

This Google built product brings the best of Google Play Games to more laptops and desktops, and we are thrilled to expand our platform for players to enjoy their favorite Android games even more.” What is worth noting is that Google seems to be keen on stressing that this is a Google-built service and does not reflect on a partnership between the company and the maker of Windows, Microsoft.

Google appears to have announced that the company will bring Android games to Windows 10 and Windows 11 PCs beginning next year, or in 2022. According to multiple reports, the company has confirmed the development of the games, but no date has been set for when the games will be available for download on Windows PCs. “Starting in 2022, players will be able to experience their favourite Google Play games on more devices: seamlessly switching between a phone, tablet, Chromebook, and soon, Windows PCs,” said Greg Hartrell, Google’s director of product for games on Android.

This comes as Microsoft announced a new Android app experience with Windows 11, adding support for certain apps using the Amazon Appstore, which itself is present inside the Microsoft Store. Hartrell also confirms that the games that will be running on Windows PCs will be working natively, and will not be streamed from cloud servers. What this means is that there would be a reduction in the need for fast internet services, with Windows PC users likely getting the ability to operate between their phone and laptop/desktop.

In other news, Google announced its plans to make an Android 12 version meant specifically for larger displays in the month of October. Today, the first beta of Android 12L is now going to be available for supported devices. This comes exactly on time as per the rollout plans for Android 12L. You can install the update if you own a Pixel 3a or newer, with the beta available for trial in the Android studio as well. The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro, which is also set to get Android 12L is not getting the update just yet, so if you bought the tablet, you need to wait for a few days till the rollout of the beta is meant for the handset. The first developer preview is available to users though, so you can get a taste of it.
