Android app support rolled out on Windows 11 Insiders, Telecom News, ET Telecom

San Francisco: Microsoft has announced the first preview of Android apps on Windows 11. Testers with Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm processors will all be able to try Android apps on Windows 11.

Support for Android applications was not launched with the initial release of Windows 11. Windows Insiders can now test Android applications on Windows 11 PCs.

“You can see Android app notifications in the Action Center or share your clipboard between a Windows app and an Android app,” the company said in a statement.

“We designed the experience with accessibility in mind; many Windows accessibility settings apply to Android apps, and we’re working with Amazon to make more improvements. “

The company has partnered with Amazon and popular app developers to organize 50 apps for Windows Insiders to test and validate on a wide variety of hardware.
Apps include mobile games like Lords Mobile, June’s Journey, and Coin Master, and reading apps like the Kindle app.

The update will allow testers to load these apps through the Microsoft Store and the apps will also be integrated into the operating system alongside Windows programs.

However, more apps will be available over the next few months. Microsoft does not say if you can install Android apps from outside the Store.

According to the company, Windows 11 delivers powerful new experiences, whether users are working on a school project, collaborating on a presentation for work, building a new app, or creating your next big idea.

Windows 11 comes with redesigns to the taskbar and Start menu icons. It also adds rounded corners for all program windows and the built-in Teams chat.

Windows 11 also includes support for DirectStorage, a feature first introduced on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles.
