After introducing it in more than 50 countries, Google has now officially released its Play Games beta for PC project in India. This allows customers to play Android games on their Windows computers.
Additionally, the service is being made available in 60 more nations, including Argentina and South Africa, bringing the total number of available nations to over 120.
The initiative was first introduced in 2022, and over the past few months, it has been steadily extended to numerous regions, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Europe.
Users must run Windows 10 on a computer with 4 CPU physical cores, 10GB of free storage on a solid-state drive (SSD), an Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU or equivalent, and 8GB of RAM in order to utilize Google Play Games on PC.
These specifications may change around the time of the program’s official release since it is still in beta. Google announced on Friday that customers in India will have the choice of using the service in both Hindi and English.
To play games, users must have a Windows admin account with hardware virtualization enabled.
Players now have access to Indian games like “Ludo King” and “Hitwicket Games” in addition to already-existing ones like “Eversoul,” “Lords Mobile,” and “Evony: The King’s Return.” In total, Google has more than 100 titles available through the initiative.
Players can sync their game progress across several platforms, including PCs, Chromebooks, Android phones, and tablets. Google also began experimenting with keyboard control for a few Android games running on ChromeOS last year.
Google also released an emulator in March to help game developers swiftly fix bugs in their creations. The business also provides integration with Android Studio so that developers may modify and publish their games.
