Before this, it already partnered with Amazon to bring Android apps to Windows 11 via WSA.

Google shared on its official blog post that it wants to offer a seamless gaming experience to users on their phones, tablets, Chromebooks, and PCs. The beta will also record your in-game achievements and sync them to your Google Play Games account so no achievement goes undocumented.
