Microsoft released Windows 11 with Android Apps support, but it is still in Beta. Users can download Android apps from the Amazon App Store and run them natively on Windows devices. However, Android support doesn’t reach the Dev and Stable channels of Windows 11, but there are various ways to execute Android apps on Windows 11 PCs.

Thanks to WSATool for making sideloading Android apps easy, you won’t require the ADB (Android Debug Bright) command line to utilise the Windows Subsystem for Android to run Android apps on non-Insider PCs. Simone Franco developed this Windows Ultizy tool, and it replicates the ADB Command-Line to install Android apps on your Windows 11 PCs.

Requirements

  • 8GB RAM (Recommended: 16GB)
  • SSD
  • Intel Core I3/AMD Ryzen 3000/Qualcomm Snapdragon 8c or higher.
  • Microsoft Store v22110.1402.6.0 or higher.
