Android games are coming to Windows devices next year

Greg Hartrell, Google’s product director of games on Android and Google Play, told The Verge that players will be able to experience their favorite Google Play games on more devices: seamlessly switching between a phone, tablet, Chromebook, and Windows PCs in 2022. The Verge report said that the tech giant has built the application on its own and has not collaborated with either Microsoft, BlueStacks or any other developer.

While not much is known about the exact date of launch or the minimum system requirement to run the app, it has emerged that the Google Play application is being developed for Windows 10 and above.

Also, users will be reuired to install the games locally, on their hard drive, though cloud saves will be enabled.
