Microsoft debuted official Android apps support on Windows with the release of Windows 11 last year. It was limited to Japan and US-based users, but that is changing now. The company has officially expanded Android app support on Windows to 31 new countries. This makes the integration a lot more mainstream than it was before.
Users can install Android apps using the updated Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA). The user also needs to download the Amazon Appstore from the Microsoft Store. You will need to grant permissions that are asked for. The next step is to launch the Amazon Appstore application and sign in with a valid account.
The support is available in the following countries:
- Isle of Man
- San Marino
- United Kingdom
- United States
- Vatican City/Holy See
Microsoft has also listed system requirements for running Android apps. Your Windows machine should have at least 8GB of RAM but 16GB RAM is recommended. There should be SSD storage, 8th Gen Intel Core i3 or above/AMD Ryzen 3000 or above, and virtual machine settings enabled.
If you reside in one of the supported countries and fulfill all the requirements, you can visit Amazon Appstore and download your favorite Android apps on Windows.
