Windows 11: Native Android App Support and Improved Functionality

Last update: Sep 12, 2023

Windows 11

Windows 11 can run Android apps natively, making it one of the key features of the new operating system. Microsoft includes the necessary tools for virtualization within the Windows 11 settings. By downloading the Amazon Appstore from the Microsoft Store, users can access a range of popular apps, though it may not compare to the wide selection offered by Google Play. However, the functionality of the available apps is expected to improve over time.

While it is possible to install Google Play on Windows 11, it can be complex and unstable at present. As an alternative, Google Play Games support on PC is currently in open beta, with support for hundreds of games available. Eventually, with full Google Play support on Windows 11, emulation will likely become unnecessary for most users unless they require advanced features like keymapping.

In contrast to other solutions, Windows 11 offers a simple solution to run Android apps out of the box. By using Amazon's Appstore, users can access popular apps without needing complex installations or downloads. While alternative solutions do exist, the built-in functionality of Windows 11 makes it a convenient and accessible option for running Android apps.
