When Windows 11 was presented, one of the novelties that most caught our attention was undoubtedly the possibility of installing Android applications on the computer itself. But although we all expected this like rain in May, in the end when Windows 11 arrived on all compatible devices, Android applications could not be installed.
Although, Microsoft wanted to start this expansion process between February and May with the preliminary launch in Canada and the United States. Now, with the arrival of Windows 11 2022 Update that we recommend you download in October, it will reach 31 extra regions. In these is Spain, Andorra, France or Italy. In this way, on all our computers with Windows 11 we will be able to have access to thousands of Android apps.

Android apps come to Windows 11
As is known in technology, it is always possible to find the trick and in this case install Android apps on Windows 11 without official support. But now we abandon all this to to welcome the Amazon Appstore that arrives in Spain and will support these applications on our computers.
Before being able to try it, it is important to enter the Microsoft Store and click on Library. Here you will have the option to check for new updates, to make sure you have the necessary components to test the applications. Specifically we are looking to update the Windows subsystem for Android. Added to this requirement is the need to have a minimum of 8 GB of RAM as well as an 8th generation Intel Core i3 or AMD Ryzen 3000 processor. Added to this is the need to have the virtual machine platform active in the BIOS.
Once you have done the update, you will have to enter Amazon Appstore and sign in or create a new account. Then, as if it were another store, you will have to search for the application in question and download it to start using it.
The experience is similar to that on a mobile phone or tablet, since you will be able to use TikTok, Instagram or any other application on your computer. All of these will open in a window like another program, and it will always depend on how it is adapted by the developers. Like any other program, it can be anchored to the bottom bar for quick access, and it can also be used with the touch screen system.
Although, this is a functionality that is expanding little by little. This makes You can’t access the app store even though you have the Windows 11 update installed. That is why you will have to wait a few weeks, which is the transition, until this entire feature is expanded. Don’t expect a Play Store though, as you won’t find that many apps here.
