Still far from our country, it seems that the technology giant has today announced the availability of the first beta of its new Google Play Games service for Windows, with a limited presence in Asia, currently only downloadable from Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan.
It seems that Google is determined to try to make a controlled and progressive access, linking the current registration system to the direct association with our Google account, making it more challenging to use VPNs.
Minimum requirements Google Play Games
- Operating system: Windows 10 (v2004)
- Processor: CPU with eight logical cores
- Memory: 8GB RAM
- GPU: Any optimized for gaming
- Storage: 20 GB of available storage space (SSD solid-state drive recommended)

A beta version that offers access to some of the most “popular” Google Play Store titles directly on PC, with titles such as Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Summoners War, or Dragon Mania Legends, without the need to use an Android phone or a Chromebook computer, while giving users more ability to take advantage of larger screens. Although the most exciting thing is that, although we don’t need to have our phone nearby, all the progress of our games will be synchronized in our Google account, being able to access it from any of the associated platforms.
However, it should be noted that the state of the Google Play Games beta is still quite premature, with tremendously limited access to a few players from around the world and with a current catalog that is still somewhat scarce compared to the many possibilities—featuring the Google Play Store. Even so, it is undoubtedly an excellent milestone for Google. While the company has long made Google Play media services available for Windows (usually via the web), games have always been an obvious exception.
In fact, at the moment, the official release date of Google Play Games is unknown, with a single advance from the company in which it was promised that it would offer details of beta versions and subsequent expansions “very soon,” and a launch window within of this year 2022.
