Android app support on Windows 11 rolling out in more countries

It has been a year since the release of Windows 11, yet Android app compatibility is still not available globally.

Microsoft is finally adding support for Android apps to Windows 11 in 21 countries other than the US. This has been a long time coming.

Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) can now be downloaded in more countries which allows Android app functionality on Windows 11. With this update, more people will be able to download a limited number of Android applications via the Amazon Appstore.

Microsoft's documentation specifies that the computer must have at least 8GB of RAM, an SSD (solid-state drive), an Intel core i3 8th Gen processor or later, and the Virtual Machine Platform setting must also be enabled.

WSA employs virtualisation and is based on the Windows Subsystem for Linux, therefore these needs should not come as a surprise.

Anyone who has purchased a mid-range or high-end PC during the past few years should not have any issues. Obviously, if you have more RAM and a better CPU, your experience with Android apps and games will be better.

WSA for Windows 11 is now being distributed to users in Andorra, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Japan, Jersey, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, San Marino, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, and Vatican City.

However, India is still not included on the list.

If you want to enable Android app compatibility on your Windows 11 PC, visit the Microsoft Store > download Amazon Appstore > and, when requested, install Windows Subsystem for Android.

After installation, enter the Amazon Appstore and sign in with your Amazon credentials to explore apps. Currently, the Amazon Appstore offers a limited number of apps, but there are ways to sideload apps.
