Microsoft’s push to allow Android apps run on Windows 11 is beginning to take shape. The company has dropped certain restrictions which will make Android apps more stable on the operating system. This will allow any app developer to submit their apps to the Amazon app store on Windows 11.
The Amazon app store actually brings a lot to the Windows operating system. It provides an easy way for a lot of Android apps to run on Windows. With a lot of apps that are recompiled for the Windows environment, Amazon app store provides a whole lot of app collections for Windows 11 users.
Most of the Android apps that undergo testing on the Amazon app store tend to run smoothly without any issues. They also offer little to no downside at all. Frankly, the decision to run Android apps on a Windows PC solely relies on the choice of the end user. However, the option is available for all users to take advantage of it.
Microsoft Gives the Green Light for Android Apps to Run on Windows 11
For some time now, the Amazon app store has been around on the Windows operating system with limited capacity. Finally, it looks like Microsoft is giving the green light for Android apps to run at their full speed.

Microsoft has also announced that the Amazon app store is open for all Android app developers who want to bring their apps to Windows. However, they may have to first submit their apps for testing. This represents a great milestone for the Windows Sub-system for Android. At this point the WSA can function as a stable environment for developers.
Microsoft has even gone the extra mile to make materials available for developers. These materials are meant to make their works a lot easier. They include guides and video tutorials for making apps compatible with WSA. Android apps in Windows 11 take a different form factor, so Microsoft has provided a guide for developers to follow. The company has provided an inbuilt mapping feature to help developers resize their app windows correctly.
When a developer is able to do it right, the app looks surprisingly good on Windows 11, and many may not be able to differentiate it from native Windows app. At the moment, Android 13 is running on WSA, this means most apps coming to the Amazon app store will come with a lot of your favorite features.
More Android Apps May Soon Come to Windows 11
With this new phase of Amazon app store, we expect more apps to begin flooding the marketplace. Currently, it has around 50,000 apps which are also available in about 31 countries. Now that Microsoft has lifted the limit on developers, we hope to see more Android apps being released for Windows 11 soon.
