25 November 2020 0

Microsoft is adding new features and capabilities to its Windows 10 so to make it an even more viable option. Now, according to Windows Central’s Zac Bowden, Microsoft is adding one more support to its Windows 10 soon that would make it capable to run Android apps directly.

Currently, you can use several emulators to run Android apps on Windows 10 PC but according to Bowden, Microsoft is adding direct support to the platform so that you do not have to look for any other way. As per the observer, the new support can arrive in Windows 10 next year.

It is currently unclear how Microsoft will implement this and make it available for everyone. This is, however, going to be a welcome change especially when the competitor is also adding support for iPad and iPhone apps on macOS.

It is believed that the new feature will encourage the developers to build their apps in a way so that they could run on Windows PCs as well.

In a special article, Bowden has also covered other big things that Windows 10 will get, including ‘Cloud PC’ that puts a version of Windows in the cloud and allows users to install apps to its so that one can stream it to any device. The journalist also cites his sources in the report and states that Microsoft is planning a big Windows 10 update in the fall of 2021 that will introduce new top-level features and a refreshed UI.

In 2021, Microsoft is also expected to ship x86 64-bit app-emulation for Windows 10 on ARM to all devices like the Surface Pro X to run the most legacy Windows apps.
