Back in December, Google announced Google Play Games will be launched in 2022. Google Play Games is the Google Play app for Windows 10 and Windows 11 — bringing mobile games to the Desktop PC. However, this is Google’s response to Microsoft’s plan to add Android to Windows 10 / 11. Not one and the same.
What Microsoft is bringing to Windows 11 is a closed Android platform via Amazon; whereas the Google Play Games app is native and has a broader variety of mobile games.
The Google Play Games (Beta) registrations are open in Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea. If you wish to get notified when Google Play Games testing is available in your area; or when it launches go here.
