US multinational technology company Microsoft has confirmed that it is now rolling out Android app support for Windows 11 users in an additional 21 countries.
According to GSM Arena, WSA, or the Windows subsystem for Android, could be downloaded for all Windows 11 users to enable support for Android apps.
With this update, more users can take advantage of a limited selection of Android apps available for download from the Microsoft Store.
Microsoft states that the machine must have a minimum of 8 GB of RAM (16 GB is recommended), a solid-state drive (SSD), Intel core i3 8th generation or higher, and that the Virtual Machine Platform setting must also be enabled.
Those who want to enable Android app support on their Windows machine can go to the Microsoft Store, download “Amazon Appstore” and install “Windows Subsystem for Android” when prompted.
Once installed, open Amazon Appstore and sign in with an Amazon account to browse the app. There aren’t many apps available in the Amazon Appstore right now, but there are ways to sideload apps.
According to GSM Arena, WSA for Windows 11 is now rolling out to users in Andorra, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Japan, Jersey, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, San Marino, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Vatican City/Holy See.
The Android subsystem built into Windows 11 is one of the more intriguing features. Depending on the computer’s hardware configuration, this allows Windows 11 users to run Android apps natively or via X86 emulation.
