During the introduction of Windows 11 last summer, Microsoft surprised everyone by announcing the arrival of Android applications on Windows, but such support did not reach everyone when it was launched, only Microsoft Insiders program users will be the only ones who can test Android apps. But that will change in a few weeks.

Microsoft has announced that Android apps will begin rolling out to all Windows 11 users next February, so you no longer need to be an Insider to install Android apps on Windows.

Android Apps on Windows 11

In the next Windows 11 update coming in February, Microsoft will launch a public preview on its App Store, allowing all users to download apps from the Amazon Appstore Preview.

As this is a preview, we will find some limitations, such as very few apps in the Amazon Appstore to install on Windows 11. It is expected that over the weeks, Microsoft and Amazon will improve support and expand the application catalog.

It looks like we’ll have to wait for future Windows updates for app support to come officially and stable to everyone, but launching the preview to all of its users is already a big step.

At the moment, in Windows 11, you can only download apps from the Amazon Appstore, but Google is already working on introducing Android games to Windows 10 and Windows 11 with the Google Play Games store, which is in the testing phase. beta started last week in South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. We hope that Google will also bring the Play Store to Windows.
