Windows 11 gets Android Subsystem in latest developer build

It’s not too long when Microsoft came out with the revelation to launch Windows 11 with an element of surprise, its native Android support via the Microsoft Store. Supported by Amazon, Microsoft provides the option to install it for your Android apps from Amazon Appstore. Nevertheless, the recent Windows release will not be Android support at the launch scheduled in October. Presently, Microsoft Store has been updated with Windows Subsystem for Android enlisted there, implying beta testing for Windows Insiders program members.

According to the findings, the given listing of Windows Subsystem for Android is merely placed there to fill the space for attempting to install the apps produces no result and brings up the blank screen. While going through the Windows Subsystem for Android webpage, all you can find in the text is “Microsoft Confidential – For testing purposes – Please do not take screenshots or communicate about the content.”  

Now, the Windows Subsystem for Android installation needs serious consideration to system requirements. The webpage content suggests the minimum Operating System requirement to be mistakenly listed as Windows 10 version 22000.63 or higher, whereas the 22000 series is used for Windows 11. Also, the previous listing has even mentioned Xbox one. However, the Xbox One has been later removed from the listing, the reason being the speculations of Android apps on Xbox. Also, the system requirement includes ARM64 or x64 architecture and 8/16GB RAM.

The release of the Android apps on Windows 11 has already been revealed to be delayed and is, therefore, a matter of dissatisfaction among the users. Meanwhile, Microsoft may be rolling out a Windows 11 preview design with the Android apps support on Insider Dev or Beta channels in the next couple of months. In the meantime, you have an option to run your Android apps on Windows PC using the Android emulators for Windows.
