Android Apps

Although the exact date of when Android apps will be available on Windows 11 isn’t yet known, Microsoft has announced that the feature is coming soon. Users will be able to install Android applications through the Amazon Appstore.

Although the feature is present on Windows 10, Windows 11 promises to make the feature easier to access for everyday users, Cheney said.

“The integration of Android apps is going to be interesting, that‘s something that has been not as easy to do in the past,” he said.

Along with the upcoming Android apps feature, the Windows App SDK set of developer components and tools provides a unified set of app programming interfaces aims to provide consistency to any desktop app on Windows 11.

“Windows App SDK APIs will work on Windows 11 and downlevel to Windows 10, version 1809,” according to Microsoft. “This means that as long as your customers are on Windows 10, version 1809, or any later version of Windows, you can use new Windows App SDK APIs and features as soon as they are released, and without having to write version adaptive code.”
