The service that lets you play some of the best Android games on PC is getting a few updates. These Google Play Games on PC updates include support for up to 4K resolutions, additional controller support, and more.
In a blog post, the tech giant announced some new features coming to the Google Play Games on PC service. One of the most notable of the changes is support for 4K gaming.
Users will have the option to bump their resolution up to 4K on supported monitors. The setting will be presented in a list of other resolutions the user can choose from. The company says users just have to press shift and tab to bring up supported resolutions.
Some console controllers are now compatible with Google Play Games on PC as well. The PS5’s DualSense and PS4’s DualShock controllers can be used with the service, along with the Xbox Series X/S’s and Xbox One’s controllers.
Additionally, Google says it has made searching for games easier. The service now features a search bar located at the top of the All Games section. And when you get to that section, you may notice Google has added two new popular games to the library — Clash of Clans and Clash Royale.
