Insiders Finally Gain Access To Android Apps On Windows 11

Android Apps have finally arrived in Windows 11 with Windows Insiders gaining access to the new Android Subsystem for Windows in the latest Beta Channel build. If you download the new beta, Android Apps will be available if you install the Amazon Appstore in the Microsoft Store or any Android app within the store.

Android apps were first teased with Microsoft’s official Windows 11 announcement a few months ago but didn’t make it in time for the Windows 11 launch. To make Android app compatibility a reality, Microsoft has built what it calls the Android Subsystem for Windows. This system virtualizes an Android environment with Hyper-V by using the Android Open Source Project so any Android app can run in Windows.
