The Google Play Games for PC beta is rolling out to users in Europe this week. Expanding Google’s feature to Microsoft’s operating system for harmonious gaming fun in more places than ever.

Prior to the expansion, this feature was only available for users in 14 countries. None of those countries are in Europe. Access included the US, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil for North and South America. It also included multiple countries in Southeast Asia such as Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. The remaining countries included Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, and Australia.

Now, the beta is available in a total of 56 countries when you factor in all the new countries who now have access.

Google Play Games for PC beta expands to Europe and New Zealand

The Play Games for PC beta is a great way for users to access their favorite Android games on their Windows PC. But it’s less exciting if you’re region isn’t included in where the feature can be enjoyed.

Now users in New Zealand as well as numerous countries in Europe can download the Google Play Games for PC beta and try things out for themselves. In addition to New Zealand, users in the UK, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Norway and many others in Europe can now download the app as well. The full list of countries can be found here.

To access the beta you’ll still need to meet some minimum requirements. For starters you need to be on Windows 10 (v2004) or Windows 11. You’ll also need to have an SSD with at least 10GB of storage and at least 8GB of RAM. Google also suggests at least an Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU or similar. Though it shouldn’t be too hard to meet that requirement these days. If you live in a supported region and want to check out the beta for yourself, you can grab it from the button below.
