Google Play Games Beta on PC Now Available in Singapore
Ever wanted to play Android games on your PC? Now you can, with Google finally making the beta for Google Play Games on PC available in more markets around the world, including Singapore.
The search engine giant announced that you’ll now be able to access the software on your PC and play from a growing catalogue of curated games optimised for desktops and laptops. You’ll just need to have a rig that runs Windows 10+ or later and has at least a four-core CPU with an integrated graphics card.
Google said it has more than doubled its Google Play Games catalogue over the last couple of months to include over 50 mobile games. Among them are Township, Homescapes, State of Survival: Zombie War and Cookie Run: Kingdom.
“Our broader goal continues to be meeting players where they are and giving them access to their games on as many devices as possible,” wrote Arjun Dayal, Google Play Games Director, in a blog post.
“Players participating in the beta have expressed excitement at being able to seamlessly play their favourite games across their phones, tablets, Chromebooks, and PCs.”
Dayal noted he and his team will continue to add more features to Google Play Games on PC as it moves towards a full release. They’ll also evaluate player and developer feedback on how they could further improve the standalone app.
Google first launched the beta for the app to limited markets earlier this year. Then, in August, it expanded access to more countries, including Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand and Australia. Today, apart from Singapore, the beta is also available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia.
Google Play Games debuted on Android in 2013, allowing players to create gamer profiles, which they use to tally the achievements they’ve collected, and tie save data to their Google accounts. Gamer profiles sync across Google Play Games on PC and mobile.
