Microsoft expands access to Android apps in Windows 11

Microsoft has expanded the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) testing program, which was introduced in

Windows 11 operating system and allows users to run Android applications on their PCs.

Previously, this useful feature was only availablemembers of the Windows Insider Program in the beta channel, but now it is also available to developers in the Dev channel. Because WSA is in the early stages of testing, there are only 50 Android apps that users can download to their computers from the Amazon Appstore.

At least for now, Amazon isthe primary source of mobile apps for Windows 11 PCs, but it's possible that WSA will expand to other digital content distribution platforms for Android devices in the future. More Android apps are also expected to become available for testing on Windows 11 in the coming months. Meanwhile, a free APK installer has appeared in the Windows app store.

Be sure to keep in mind that the Android subsystem in Windows 11 does not support running applications that require Google Mobile Services to run.
