Google has commenced the rollout of Google Play Games for PC Beta in Europe and New Zealand, allowing users to enjoy Android games on their Windows computers. The announcement was made during the annual Google for Game Developers Summit held in March.
The program was initially introduced in 2022 and has been available in over 50 countries worldwide. The current phase of the rollout includes more than 40 European countries, such as Austria, Belgium, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Ireland, and the UK, as well as New Zealand. Previously, the service was accessible to players in 13 countries, including Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, and the US.
To use Google Play Games on PC, users need a PC running Windows 10 with 4 CPU physical cores, 10 GB of free storage on a solid-state drive (SSD), an Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU or equivalent, and 8 GB of RAM. It’s important to note that the program is currently in beta, so these requirements may change in the future.
Google currently offers more than 100 titles under the Google Play Games on PC program, with new games being added each month. Additionally, the company introduced an emulator in March, facilitating game developers in debugging their games more easily. Integration with Android Studio is also available, enabling game-makers to make adjustments and deploy their games seamlessly.
