Google has expanded the availability of its Play Games beta for PC to India and 60 other new countries, including Argentina and South Africa. This move increases the project’s reach to over 120 countries globally. The initiative, which allows users to play Android games on their Windows systems, was first launched in 2022 and has since been gradually rolled out to various regions such as Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Europe.
To utilize Google Play Games on a PC, users must have a system with Windows 10, four CPU physical cores, 10GB of free storage on an SSD, an Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU or equivalent, and 8GB of RAM. However, these requirements may be subject to change upon the final release of the program. Google has also announced that Indian users can access the service in both English and Hindi languages.
The platform offers access to a wide range of titles, including popular games like “Eversoul,” “Lords Mobile,” and “Evony: The King’s Return.” It also features Indian games such as “Ludo King” and “Hitwicket Games,” with more than 100 titles available under the program. Users can sync their game progress across multiple devices, including Android phones, tablets, Chromebooks, and PCs.
In addition to this, Google introduced keyboard control for select Android games on ChromeOS last year. In March, the tech giant launched an emulator for game-makers to quickly debug their games. This tool also provides integration with Android Studio, enabling developers to make adjustments and deploy their games more efficiently.
