Google Play Games for PC continues to enhance the gaming experience with its recent updates. Announced on Monday, October 23, the platform is introducing several features to cater to the needs of gaming enthusiasts.
One of the standout features is the introduction of 4K resolution support.

The update also expands the range of controller support. Joining the roster of compatible controllers are the PlayStation 5’s DualSense, PlayStation 4’s DualShock, and controllers from both Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One.
