It is unknown at the time of writing the article what kind of technology the application used, but Hartrell explains that it is not an application that uses cloud gaming technology, but an application that runs locally on the PC.

'It's a native Windows app distributed by Google and supports Windows 10 and above,' Hartrell said, explaining that it doesn't depend on Windows 11. Windows 11 will be equipped with 'a function that allows Android apps to be used as they are', but the 'app for playing Android game apps on Windows' revealed by Google this time is different from this function.

'The ability to run Android apps on Windows 11' is a feature developed independently by Microsoft and not in collaboration with Google. Microsoft is planning to partner with Amazon to allow Windows users to install Android apps from the Amazon Appstore in preparation for the introduction of 'the ability to run Android apps on Windows 11', but the official app store Google Play Is not supported at the time of article creation.

Therefore, the number of Android game apps that can be played on Windows 11 was supposed to be limited, but with Google's announcement of its own 'app that will be able to play Android games on Windows', it will be more. Many games may be available for play on Windows.

Another way to play Android game apps on Windows is ' BlueStacks '. BlueStacks is a cloud gaming service that can be used completely free of charge, and can also be used from a browser.
