The apps can be found in the Microsoft Store, which provides a list of them. Android apps can coexist with Windows applications. The apps are also incorporated into Alt + Tab and Task View, allowing you to pin them to the Start menu or taskbar. In the Action Center, users can see notifications and share a clipboard with other Windows and Android apps.
Previously, Microsoft announced that Android apps will be available through the Amazon Appstore on the Microsoft Store website. As opposed to Google Play, the app selection on Amazon is somewhat limited.
According to the developers of Windows 11,
“Notifications from Android apps appear in the Action Center, and you can share your clipboard across Windows and Android apps.” Many Windows accessibility settings apply to Android apps, and we’re working with Amazon to offer more improvements.”
Microsoft claims to have formed partnerships with a number of app developers. The new apps will be available via Windows Insider Program upgrades in the coming months, according to the firm. Lords Mobile, June’s Journey, and Coin Master are now available to Windows 11 testers.
Khan Academy Kids and Lego Duplo World are two other kid-friendly apps available. Windows 11 has a built-in component that supports Android app support. There is a Linux kernel with Android OS version 11 based on the Android Open Source Project (ASOP).
According to the Microsoft Android app team,
“Like the Windows Subsystem for Linux, the Subsystem runs in a Hyper-V Virtual Machine.”
Microsoft has teamed together with Intel to make it possible for Arm-only software to operate on both Intel and AMD machines.
