Microsoft Windows 11 wouldn’t actually support Android apps when the first build came out Now, however, Microsoft — in partnership with Amazon and its app store — is bringing a small subset of about 50 Android apps to the Windows 11 Insider Program.
if you’re on a beta build of Windows 11 you can now try apps like Amazon’s own Kindle app, The Washington Post app, Clash of Kings, Coin Master, and Lego Duplo World.
Here are the quick steps if you want to join the Windows 11 beta program
- Head to Settings > Update & Security.
- From the Windows Update tab, choose ‘Check for updates’
- After a few seconds, an update named ‘Windows 11 Insider Preview’ will automatically begin downloading.
- Once it’s finished, you’ll be prompted to restart your PC.
Note: I don’t recommend trying this any your main device
This should work on AMD and Intel devices, with the apps running on what Microsoft calls the “Windows Subsystem for Android,” which itself is powered by Intel’s Intel Bridge Technology. Microsoft is using the Linux kernel and Android OS based on the open-source version of Android 11. With that, it gets virtually all of Android’s capabilities, but not some of the apps and additional functionality that Google brings to its Android build.
