In his opinion, most individuals would be better served by using an Android tablet or Chromebook instead of Android apps running on Windows 11 desktop computers (or even their phone). This is especially true when you take into account the fact that these experiences are delivered through the Amazon App store. Despite this, some users might still find that having particular apps on their desktop operating system is beneficial.
So won’t go into too much detail here today as we’ve already discussed what these apps coming to Windows means for Chromebooks, but the short answer is “not much.” Amazon can never be more than an add-on service to an OS that makes use of full-fledged software experiences until it can compete with the numerous titles that the Google Play Store provides.
The Windows Subsystem for Android, which according to all logic should actually be called “Android Subsystem for Windows,” was unveiled today. just came out of beta and is now accessible in 31 areas. This implies that anyone using Windows 11 and interested in installing and checking out Android apps can do so pretty quickly.
The simplest method to achieve this is by visiting the Windows App Store and installing the Amazon Appstore. Yeah, that’s not at all confusing. The first step is to enable the Windows Subsystem for Android. Nevertheless, after doing that, you’ll get access to more than 50,000 apps. Just be aware that you can only use web apps for Google services like Tasks, Calendar, and Gmail.
You can now check out this update if you live in Australia, Canada, Christmas Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Cook Islands, Heard and McDonald Islands, New Zealand, Niue, Norfolk Island, and Tokelau in addition to the previous 21 regions where it was already in beta, including the United States.
If you’re like us, you’ll also need to turn on virtualization in your BIOS, but I’m too lazy to try something that won’t even support Google services or apps. However, you now have the ability to fiddle about a little and see what’s on offer if you’re interested.
