Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 11, has introduced a significant feature - Android app support through an Android subsystem. Over time, Microsoft has been enhancing and expanding the Android compatibility layer, which has made it possible to run more apps and games.
Android apps are now available on Windows 11 through the Microsoft Store, but they are managed and hosted by the Amazon Appstore, the same ecosystem used on Amazon's Fire tablets. With this development, any Appstore developer can submit their apps for review and distribution on Windows 11 PCs, making a wide variety of Android apps available on Windows computers.
To support this move, Microsoft has been improving the Windows Subsystem for Android. The subsystem now supports Android 13 and has introduced several features such as picture-in-picture mode. Microsoft considers the subsystem mature enough to allow all developers to submit their apps.
As time passes by, you can expect to see a gradual increase in the number of apps available for Windows 11. Perhaps, you might even find the one app that was missing from your computer. However, it is important for developers to ensure that their apps are optimized for window resizing and native mapping, in order to function seamlessly on Windows 11. This is according to Microsoft.
