Google Play Games for PC has finally arrived in the US
Not so long ago, Google revealed that it wanted to bring Google Play Games to PCs. He’s been beta testing it overseas since, but now he’s heading to more markets. The beta version of Google Play Games on PC is now available in the US as well as other regions, according to Android Police.
At this point, there are several ways to play Android games on your Windows PC. There are legacy methods like BlueStacks and newer methods like the Amazon App Store on Windows 11. The problem with the latter method is that you won’t have access to first-party Google apps because you won’t have no access to Google Play services.
However, when Google announced that it wanted to bring Play Games to PCs, it gave us a lot of hope. Now, we are only talking about games, so you still won’t be able to use proprietary apps on your Windows PC.
Google Play Games for PC is coming to the US
You can now use the beta version of Google Play Games for PC if you live in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia. This brings the total number of supported markets to 13, including the five home markets: South Korea, Hong Kong, Australia, Taiwan and Thailand.
If you want to use the beta version of Play Games, your computer will need to meet certain technical requirements. It is recommended that your computer has at least 8 GB of RAM, a 4-core processor and 10 GB of free storage space.
How to set up the beta
If you’re looking to try it out, it’s really quick and easy to set up. First, follow this link. With this link you will download the app launcher installer. The installer will download additional files and automatically install the launcher.
When you start the launcher for the first time, you will be prompted to sign in with your Google account. Click the login button and you will be taken to a browser window where you will login.
After this point, you’ll go through the usual round of accepting the Terms of Service and straight into the games.
At this point, there aren’t a ton of games to choose from. This makes sense, since this is a beta version. At the moment, 62 games are available. These games include Genshin Impact, Asphalt 9, Summoner’s War, and Sword Art Online: Integral Factor. You can expect more games to release as the beta progresses
