Google Play Games for PC has launched in the US and 7 other countries. Play Android games on your PC TODAY (Req: Win 10 or 11, 10GB SSD, 8GB of RAM)

https://www.engadget.com/google-play-games-pc-us-beta-180621316.html
Google Play Games has arrived on PC in more countries, including the US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore. The app, which is available in beta, allows you to play a selection of Android games on your PC with a mouse and keyboard. Google started testing the app in Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan in January (and later in Australia and Thailand) after promising at the tail end of last year that Google Play Games would come to PC in 2022.

There are 85 titles on Google Play Games, as The Verge notes, though Google plans to add more. The lineup includes Cookie Run: Kingdom, WWE SuperCard and Just Dance Now. Those are somewhat notable games, but you'll perhaps find heavier hitters on Apple Arcade and Netflix.

Minimum requirements​

  • OS: Windows 10 (v2004)
  • Storage: Solid state drive (SSD) with 10 GB of available storage space
  • Graphics: IntelⓇ UHD Graphics 630 GPU or comparable
  • Processor: 4 CPU physical cores
  • Memory: 8 GB of RAM
  • Windows admin account
  • Hardware virtualization must be turned on


If Google were smart they would have made the program exclusive to Chromebooks to convince people to buy them.

But for those on the forum who are hardcore mobile gamers, you can now play your mobile games on your laptop or PC monitor with mouse and keyboard. With 85 games currently available and more too come.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.
Hardware virtualization required - shouldn't be an issue for most people, but gives us a glimpse to the fact that they're doing containerized virtualization to accomplish this. Essentially Android emulation.

Also - only 40 games available? Boo

The whole point is to compete against 3rd party launchers like the MS Store, Bluestacks, etc.

Making this Chromebook exclusive would make no sense, the potential marketshare gains would be minimal besides Chromebooks already support Android apps, it’s not like it’s been a market mover either.

I could imagine testing certain mobile games on PC, stuff like Blue Archive, Pokemon Masters & Arknights.
Windows 11 got similar support and perhaps other actors like Valve may develop such a framework for themselves. It would remove a lot of friction for developers.

Question is, will it run games better than android emulators that are on the market for years and can run pretty much all andoid games out there?

Can someone test the performance of a game runing on this, vs Nox and LDPlayer9 ?

But you can already just emulate a phone. What advantage does this offer that doesn't offset the disadvantage of being limited to 40 games instead of all of them.

Seems to totally miss the point that people play these games because they can do so on their smartphone, not a fucking computer.

Ease of use?

With the existing emulators, you basically have to walk through the "new phone setup" screens then log in to your Google account -> go to play store -> download game(s). With this, you just download the app and sign in to Google. Not a huge deal for most people like us, but imagine trying to tell your parents how to set up Bluestacks and configure keybindings so that they could play Clash of Clans on their PC.
 
Anything that i should try out?
JRPG genre( or most turn based games) and Tower defense genre are great on phones.

Edit: Also funny enough I recommend checking out what's on Apple Arcade for a curated list of good titles to also play on Google Play Store.

Damn it was hoping that there was finally a way to play Marvel Contest of Champions without getting banned on blue stacks.
