Microsoft is bringing Android apps to its new app Store, the software giant announced during its Windows 11 launch event Thursday. A fast-tracked way to use Android apps on the Windows PC will be integrated into the new Windows 11 operating system once it's launched -- Microsoft hasn't revealed an official release date yet but said the Windows 11 will arrive this holiday season.
Currently, Android apps are available to use on Windows 10, but only with the Your Phone app that Microsoft rolled out last year. Windows 11 will also introduce a prettified version of desktop widgets to personalize your PC's look and feel. In addition, new Xbox gaming features will come to Windows 11.
When can I start using Android apps on my PC?
Microsoft hasn't released an official date for when Windows 11 would be available to the general public, but we do know it'll be available this holiday season. Once it launches, Android apps are expected to be in the new Store via Amazon's App store.
