Mobile games from Google Play Games have officially appeared on PC. Google has announced the launch of beta testing of the desktop version of its service. But there were some restrictions — while residents of only three countries can play Android titles on Windows.

At the moment, the beta PC version of Google Play Games is working in Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan.

According to the company, during 2022 the service will be released in at least several more regions, but in which ones — she did not specify.

There are currently 25 games in the Google Play Games desktop library. Among them are Summoners War, State of Survival, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and Township. All titles support cross-progression. In other words, users can start playing on a computer and then continue on a smartphone (but for this you need to log in to a Google account). Users can also receive Google Play Points regardless of which device they are playing on.

Also today, Google is launching a sub-site with information on game development for the service.

Recall that Google announced plans to release Google Play Games on PC in December 2021. Then the company did not explain how the service would work, saying only that it would not be “cloud-based”. According to Google estimates, the release of the desktop version will allow Google Play Games to reach a MAU of 2.5 billion people.

Earlier, Microsoft and Amazon also talked about a similar initiative. Last summer, they announced that they were going to embed the Amazon Appstore application in the Microsoft Store, thanks to which Android projects will be available on the PC.
