At this year’s Game Awards, a surprising announcement was made by a Google spokesperson: Games found on Google Play will have native support on Windows 10 and 11 starting next year. Then again, given that Microsoft already has a partnership with Amazon to list its apps on the Windows 11 Microsoft Store, it was only a matter of time for Google to step in as well.
However, while Microsoft and Amazon have officially announced their partnership, Google appears to be doing it alone. The spokesperson did not go into details, but said the games would be available through a Google app developed on Windows 10 and 11 and there would be a sense of continuity.
For example, you can start a game on your Android phone and pick up where you left off on your laptop or desktop.
As we pointed out, Google hasn’t revealed much about the integration, but said more information will be available soon. We hope that these efforts will spread to other categories of applications and that all Google Play games will be available for PC.
