Google Play Games would be coming to PCs as a beta experience to a limited number of markets. Google’s goal was to gather early feedback so they could continue improving the product to fit the needs of players and developers around the world.
In August, Google has expanded the product to more players in Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand and Australia. Since then, the company have added multiple features and lowered the minimum PC spec requirements. As of now, Google Play Games beta will be available for download to all players in Malaysia alongside the US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, Philippines, and Singapore.
The company also stated over the last few months that they have been growing Google Play Games catalog with many popular mobile titles including 1945 Air Force, Blade Idle, Cookie Run: Kingdom, and Evony: The King’s Return. All of these titles and dozens more can be played on Windows PCs via a standalone application built by Google.
As of now, Google is trying to allow players to access to their games on as many devices as possible. Players participating in the beta have expressed excitement at being able to seamlessly play their favorite games across their phones, tablets, Chromebooks and PCs. Additionally, Google is trying to reach even more players by reducing the minimum spec requirements to PCs running Windows 10+ with an integrated graphics card and 4+ core CPU.
