You can play now Google Play Games on Windows – If you live in the right country. There is Google On A registration-based beta offering access to “popular” play game titles on Windows PCs in Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan. If you get, you can hop in the title Mobile Legend: Bang Bang And Battle of the Summoners Without reaching for an Android phone or Chromebook. You can take advantage of the big screen and additional input options and your progress will still be synced across the platform.
Google says it will offer details of the next beta and expansion “soon”. It was previously committed to a generic 2022 rollout.
It still leaves many gamers without access, and the current catalog will not thrill players who want to play any Google Play title. Still, it’s a big milestone for Google. Although the company has long made Google Play Media services available on Windows (if usually via the web), games are a bright exception. Not that relaxation requirements will necessarily hurt Google – the goal is to make a continuous jump from an Android phone or Chrome OS machine, so the company wins no matter which way you play.
