Google aims to release a customized version of the Google Play Games app for Windows OS next year. With that, the company plans to bring Android games to the platform. The program will be designed for Windows; allowing Android games to be played on Windows laptops, tablets, and PCs.
The implementation, according to Greg Hartrell, Google’s product director for games on Android and Google Play, would allow seamless switching across phones, tablets, Chromebooks, and Windows PCs. Hence, it will allow you to play your favorite Android games to operate on more devices than ever before. What’s more, after playing on one device, you can resume the game on another.

As per the Google spokeswoman, Alex Garcia-Kummert, the company has not partnered with Microsoft to develop the software or any other firm; it has produced the software on its own. So, we are not sure what technology Google is using to replicate Android apps on Windows. But one thing we know for sure is that, instead of streaming from the cloud, games will run locally.
Moreover, Google will also provide the Google Play Games app, which will support Windows 10 and higher versions. Plus, it will have no specific integration with the OS. Because Microsoft’s Android app virtualization only works with Windows 11; it’s fantastic to see that earlier Windows 10 machines will finally be able to play Android games. Google, on the other hand, does not appear to be interested in running conventional Android apps on Windows.
For the time being, Google has just teased the app during Game Awards, promising a release in 2022.
