The stable version of Microsoft's Windows Subsystem for Android has been made available

Support for Android applications was one of the most appealing features for Android aficionados like us when Windows 11 first debuted a little more than a year ago. Microsoft guaranteed that Android applications will function on Windows computers much like native programs. But in other countries, only Windows Insiders had access to the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA), which was in charge of managing app support. That is now starting to change as Android support moves towards a stable state.

WSA is now available to everyone in 31 markets, according to Cory Hendrixson of Microsoft, and has just under 50,000 applications to keep you entertained. Microsoft's WSA solution depends on the rather constrained Amazon Appstore for access to apps, but it eliminates the need for a stand-alone Android emulator for your PC and gives you access to a ton of computing power.

With this change, utilizing Android applications will no longer need you to be a Windows Insider using a preview release of Windows 11. Make sure your computer satisfies the minimal specifications for WSA, and then follow our instructions to install the Amazon Appstore and the Windows Subsystem for Android on it. You don't need to be an Insider to utilize these manual installation methods (yes, PowerShell), which now work on any supported PC running Windows 11 if WSA isn't accessible in your area.

Keep in mind that several features, such as support for picture-in-picture (PIP), hardware DRM, USB, direct Bluetooth access, and Android widgets, are still in the works. Support for other features should follow. Mishaal Rahman, a senior editor at Esper, also notes that WSA will receive an Android 13 upgrade.
