Android apps on Windows 11 expand to five more countries

Finally, some movement beyond the home turf. Microsoft has confirmed at BUILD 2022 that it is expanding its program that brings Android apps on Windows 11 to more countries.

The feature, in development for a long time, became available to users recently after an extensive testing period. But only users in the United State were able to give it a whirl. But with this expansion, people in more markets will get their hands on it.

These include the usual suspects like France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the good old UK.

As announced, Windows 11 users in these five additional markets will be able to take advantage of Android apps. Though the company has not outlined a set timeframe, it notes that this should happen by the end of the year.

Redmond also pointed out that the Amazon Appstore preview will continue growing on a monthly basis.

While this is all dandy, no word on official support for the Google Play.

Enterprising users have already hacked into the possibility to run the most popular apps repository on Windows 11, but native support for Google branded store still remains a distant dream. Not when the search engine giant itself is not keen on making its solutions available to Windows users in this fashion.

But hopefully, with this new expansion, Microsoft can finally take the next step.

That of, making the Android apps experience available to all users.

The software titan recently rolled out a wholesome set of improvements to the feature that added new and welcome changes to Windows Subsystem for Android, the technology that makes running these apps and games possible.
