Microsoft will release Windows 11 on October 5 and a key feature that has been promised and will not be delivered is support for Android apps. But the application was officially released in the Microsoft Store and you can download it.
Unfortunately, he is not doing anything right now. If you go and open the application in the Microsoft Store, you will see just a blank black window.
But what is interesting is the listing in the Store for Windows Subsystem for Android. The application has not gone through any preview stage, and Microsoft has not explained how it will work or what you will need.
The Microsoft post is therefore referred to as Confidential in the description, because the application is intended for testing and people who are supposed to use it should not take screenshots or talk about its content.
The system requirements page is a bit more specific. The required version of Windows is 22000, which will be the one released on October 5. But as we can see from the Store, the function can be released independently. It will require 8 GB of RAM, with 16 GB recommended. It will work with ARM64 or x64 processors, which is not surprising, as these two types of processors can work with Windows 11.
Perhaps most interestingly, this application is also available for Xbox consoles (Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S).
Until today, Microsoft had not talked about Android applications running on game consoles, but gaming on Android is a big deal. Transferring these games to the console could be a very useful strategy if it does happen.
