Play Store now lets you download games on Windows
Google has officially launched the beta testing period for Google Play games running on Windows. But for now, only users from certain regions can try cross-play.
Google hasn’t said anything specific about how it plans to support cross-play except that it would require a Google-created app to be installed on your PC, however, based on users who can test it, there is no such requirement. . A “Download on Windows” button appeared on the desktop version of Google Play for some and clicking it downloads an executable file for Windows.
Either way, you probably won’t have that extra button on your Google Play store because the initial beta release is supposed to be limited to South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, but users outside of these regions say they can try it out as well. . It’s a bit murky at this point, but the development process seems to be moving fast and soon you’ll be able to play your favorite Android games on PC too. Google has already asked game developers to optimize their games to work with keyboard and mouse instead of simple touch controls.
