In a shocking announcement, Microsoft announced the all-new Windows 11 will be able to load Android apps and we will show you how to use them. Using mobile apps on desktops is slowly being spread into almost all operating systems including Mac. But, with the new announcement by Windows 11 support to Android apps this game is up.
It is not all easy to just install Android apps on Windows 11 too, you should install the Amazon app store using the windows store and then download the Android apps available in the Amazon store. Though this is a multi-layered process, it is a good sign for a better future. Windows confirms that users can pin the Android apps to the toolbar which will be a great addition to Windows.
Microsoft is making sure every app we need is there available on their platform either as a direct windows store app or as an Android app. in its demo, Microsoft showed off TikTok mobile app used in Windows 11, but if we follow through the rest of the event we can see apps like Uber, Twitter, yelp, etc are also part of this initial launch. Microsoft also promises to bring almost every app available and users will be able to access them either by Microsoft store or Amazon store.
Although this is a direct reply to Apple’s M1 chip supporting both IOS and macOS apps, we do encourage this kind of competition, since it always benefits users. Microsoft did not mention any details about what devices will this new feature support, but we are hoping they would just add support to Windows 10 and 11 at least.
