Microsoft is now allowing Windows 11 testers to try out Android applications. From Wednesday, a new preview version of Windows 11 allegedly made available to beta testers. Testers using Intel, AMD, or Qualcomm-based CPUs will be able to try Android apps from the Amazon Appstore in Windows 11.
Microsoft has also partnered with Amazon to provide a collection of 50 apps for Windows Insiders to test on the operating system. The apps include mobile games such as Lords Mobile, June’s Journey, and Coin Master, as well as reading apps such as the Kindle app.
The update will allow testers to download these applications via the Microsoft Store, and they will also be integrated into the operating system alongside Windows programs, allowing users to easily switch between them using the Alt+Tab command.
“You can see notifications from Android apps notifications in the Action Center or share your clipboard between a Windows app and an Android app,” the team behind Android on Windows 11 said. “We have built the experience with accessibility in mind; many Windows accessibility settings apply to Android apps and we are working with Amazon to deliver more improvements,” the team added.
