Microsoft announced at its special Windows event about its Windows 11 addition and the introduction of Android apps to Windows 11. According to the company, Android apps will run natively on Windows 11 and can be downloaded from Amazon’s Appstore via the newly launched Window’s store, which is part of Window’s OS.
The Android apps will be listed in Window’s store and can be pinned to the taskbar or snapped next to the Windows apps.
At the event, Microsoft also showed a demonstration of running apps like TikTok on Windows 11. The company is collaborating with Intel to run the Android apps on Windows using the Intel Bridge technology, so it is not clear how efficiently devices will be supporting these apps.
Microsoft has been accepting of Android as the mobile version of Windows and has been working on bringing Android apps natively to Windows for years. The company’s plan can finally be seen as executed, with the introduction of Android apps running directly on Windows 11.
