Windows 11 will be available as a free upgrade to all genuine Windows 10 users starting from October 5. That will be the stable version of Windows with free of bugs and problems, unlike to the beta version that some people have been using for some time. Aside from bugs, the stable version of Windows 11 may lack an essential feature: support for Android applications. Microsoft announced that Android applications would be accessible on Windows 11 only in the coming months, implying that customers will be unable to use Tiktok or Instagram on their PCs for the first few months.
“We look forward to continuing our journey to bring Android apps to Windows 11 and the Microsoft Store through our collaboration with Amazon and Intel; this will start with a preview for Windows Insiders over the coming months,” Aaron Woodman, general manager of Windows marketing at Microsoft, said in a blog post.
Microsoft has not said what it means by “coming months,” although it is likely to be somewhere in 2022, since the scheduled release of Windows 11 is in October.
At the launch of Windows 11, Microsoft touted native support for Android applications as one of the most significant improvements coming to the next PC operating system. Individuals have been able to run Android apps on their PCs using emulators, they have never been able to run them directly. Running an app natively provides a lot greater reliability as well as a slew of features from the app developer. Microsoft claimed that the Amazon Appstore would include over 500,000 apps, including Tiktok, Instagram, Uber, and Lyft, among others.
