Google wants to bring Android closer to Windows PCs without Microsoft

On the occasion of CES 2022, Google announced that for the first time with Android, ” We also focus on development on other platforms, like Windows, whether in the area of ​​games, productivity or otherwise.

This does not mean, however, a work carried out in concert with Microsoft. On the contrary, there is explicit mention of working with players such as Acer, HP and Intel in order to offer experiences to certain Windows PCs in the course of the year.

Among these experiences, the connection of an Android smartphone to the Windows PC with Fast Pair is mentioned as an example. This connection will be used for the quick setup of Bluetooth accessories, message synchronization and nearby file sharing with Nearby Share.

Competition with Your Phone?

Google remains unclear on the deployment and form of such new features, knowing moreover that for its part Microsoft has already made efforts to facilitate the use of an Android smartphone from the PC via “Your Phone” for Windows 10 and 11.

Remember also that Google has already indicated that in 2022, Google Play Games will land on PC and in particular through an application distributed for Windows 10 and 11 … still without a partnership with Microsoft.

This will mean being able to play Android games available with the Google Play Store which will be run locally (no gaming streams) and with the possibility of continuity on various devices.
