On Windows, you may now download games from the Play Store

Play Store now lets you download games on Windows. In any case, the chances are that you don’t have that extra button on your Google Play store as the initial beta rollout is supposedly limited to South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan but users outside of those regions say they can try it out as well. So it’s a bit murky at this point but the development process seems to be moving fast and soon you will be able to play your favorite Android games on PC too. Google has already asked game developers to optimize their games to work with keyboard and mouse instead of just touch controls.

The beta testing period for Google Play games on Windows has officially begun. However, for the time being, cross-play is only available to users in a few regions. In some regions, Windows compatibility for Android games on the Play Store is available. Google hasn’t stated much about how it wants to implement cross-play functionality, beyond that it will necessitate the installation of a Google-ma dode programme on a user’s PC. However, people who have been able to test it out say that this isn’t the case. For some users, a “Download on Windows” button appeared on the desktop version of Google Play, and selecting it downloads a Windows executable file.
