Google just announced that it will bring Android games to PC next year, allowing people to play games purchased through the Google Play Store directly on Chromebooks and Windows computers.
According to Theverge, in his statement, Google’s game product manager for Android and Play Store, Greg Hartrell, said that as of 2022, players will be able to experience their favorite Google Play games on Google Play. more devices: seamlessly switch between phones, tablets, Chromebooks and, soon, Windows computers. Apps that run games are built by Google itself, and users can resume games on PC after playing them on their phone or elsewhere.
In fact, apps Android have been playable on Windows in a number of different ways in the past. Microsoft itself has partnered with Amazon to allow games and apps from the Amazon Appstore (supports Android) to run in Windows 11. There are also tools like BlueStacks that provide an environment to run Android games . Google doing that means there will be quick integration across platforms, including leaderboards perhaps synced and the like.
It should be remembered that a lot of Android games are clearly designed to be played on a touchscreen or use features not available on desktop computers. For example, Pokémon Go will not work without GPS tracking. Also, just because a game can be launched in Windows does not automatically mean that it will automatically play well or feel comfortable with a mouse and keyboard.
However, this still suggests that the computer will soon become the ultimate destination for every game. This is an official product of Google, helping to open a large number of hot mobile games to computers such as Pokémon Unite and Mystic Messenger.
