How to Run Android Apps in Windows 11

When Windows 11 launched on October 5th, it lacked Android app support, one of its most highly-touted new features. However, as of now, Windows Insiders in the beta channel, who have build 22000.282 or higher, can set up Windows Subsystem for Android and install a select group of apps from the Amazon app store. 

We the Windows Subsystem for Android on a laptop with a Core i7-8550U processor and found that performance was decent if and when apps loaded. Some apps would take a really long time to open while others failed to open the first time I tried them, but worked after a reboot. As of this writing, there are only 50 apps to choose from, all of them from Amazon’s app store, and none is particularly impressive.
