Windows 11 Android Apps Launch for More Users

One of the greatest additional features which are bundled with Windows 11 is the support for Android apps, as users are now able to run apps designed for Google’s mobile operating-system directly on their desktops.

The rollout of Android apps in Windows 11, however, is going on gradually, which week, the software giant announced that by the end of the year, more users would finally be provided with access to this highly anticipated feature.

“The Amazon Appstore preview on Windows 11 happens to be available in the US, and it’ll be expanding to 5 additional countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom, by the end of this season,” Microsoft says.

The Android experience on Windows 11 is run by the Amazon Appstore. While the downloads take place from the Microsoft Store, the links come from the Amazon Appstore, though users can also install APK files manually using various other methods.

Android improvements on Windows 11

Microsoft has announced a series of improvements for Android apps on Windows 11, including not just support for Android 12.1, but additionally a redesign of the Settings app.

“The Windows Subsystem for Android Settings app has been redesigned and updated in a huge way. We’ve redesigned the app from the ground up, with clearer settings groups, grouped navigation and an all-around cleaner user experience. We’ve also added a diagnostic data viewer where one can examine all the diagnostic data collected by the Subsystem, and configuration options within the new compatibility settings to turn on fixes for particular apps such as forcing apps to be non-resizable or enabling swipes for arrow keys,” Microsoft says.

While Microsoft claims the expanded availability would take place later this season, there’s a chance the discharge is supposed to happen with the debut of Windows 11 version 22H2.
