When Microsoft announced Windows 11 in the summer of 2021, one of the features that attracted the most attention was that it would be compatible with Android applications. This would be achieved through amazon-appstorealthough it was already announced that it would be a functionality that would take a while to arrive.

In early 2022, Microsoft enabled the ability to install Android apps on Windows 11, but only in the United States. It has not been until now that the company has opened the door to other regions of the planet.

Installing Android apps and games on Windows 11 is very easy. We just have to open the Microsoft Store application and do a search.
