Windows Subsystem for Android with Google Play store


In June, Microsoft promised to bring Android apps to Windows 11 and a few days ago, the feature was finally released to users of Windows 11 Beta.

Last night we posted a way to help you get the most out of them Android apps and the "fixed" version of Windows 11.

google play

However, Android apps on Windows 11, at least for now, only download through the Amazon Appstore (available through the Microsoft Store), which means users will miss out on a bunch of apps available in the Google Play store.

To address this, a developer named ADeltaX wrote a script that allows users to use Google Play services on the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA). It is currently available on GitHub as WSAGAScript.

To install the script, you must follow the instructions provided by the developer:

Download MSIXBUNDLE (use store rg-adguard to download the msixbundle, Package id: 9P3395VX91NR, Ring: SLOW, size is around 1.2GB)

INSTALL WSL2 (ubuntu / debian, any other distro could work)

INSTALL unzip lzip

DOWNLOAD GAPPS PICO FROM OPENGAPPS (x86_64, 11, PICO)

EXTRACT MSIXBUNDLE, EXTRACT MSIX (YOUR ARCH) TO A FOLDER, DELETE (APPXMETADATA, APPXBLOCKMAP, APPXSIGNATURE, [CONTENT_TYPES])

COPY IMAGES (SYSTEM.IMG, SYSTEM_EXT.IMG, PRODUCT.IMG, VENDOR.IMG) TO #IMAGES

COPY (GAPPS PICO ZIP) TO #GAPPS

EDIT (VARIABLES.sh) AND SET ROOT FOLDER

EXECUTE:

extract_gapps_pico.sh

extend_and_mount_images.sh

apply.sh

unmount_images.sh

COPY IMAGES FROM (#IMAGES FOLDER) TO YOUR EXTRACTED MSIX FOLDER

OPEN POWERSHELL (NOT CORE) AS ADMIN, EXECUTE (Add-AppxPackage -Register PATH_TO_EXTRACTED_MSIX \ AppxManifest.xml)

RUN WSA WITH GAPPS, ENJOY

The developer states that this is a project in progress, so errors should be expected. The readme file will be updated with simpler instructions and more details.

For those of you who are interested, the WSAGAScript is available on GitHub, but you must proceed at your own risk.
