Microsoft has created a Windows subsystem for Android, capable of running Android apps from a variety of sources. Microsoft is using it in partnership with Amazon to allow native installations of games and apps from the Amazon AppStore on Windows, but despite the workarounds, Google Play is not yet officially supported.
The Google Play Games app will be a native Windows app that won’t involve game streaming, however, Google has opened a developer site that should start providing more information to game developers so they can increase the number of games available.
The Google Play Games will be installed on Windows directly from the Microsoft Store in the course of 2022, and at least initially only Android video games will be present and will be available as a native Windows app without game streaming and all the updated news can be found on the website dedicated to developers.
