Windows 11 has been out for a year and has been one of the most popular releases in recent years. The new UI and powerful Edge browser are among the most appealing features of the operating system, but it also includes a variety of other improvements.
But one feature that stands out is the support for Android apps. The new operating system runs Android apps right from the desktop.
Launch Of WSA
This means you can now get your favorite Android apps and games on your Windows device, including those from Google (YouTube, Google Maps, Gmail, etc.) and Samsung. It was an exciting possibility, but the software giant could have done better.
The company is fixing its mistake with a new program called Project Centennial. It’s a new version of the company’s Windows Subsystem for Linux, which has been around for a few years and gives you the option of running Android apps on your Windows machine.
Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) that Microsoft released in October 2020.
Features Of WSA
- WSA enables users to run many apps side by side with the Windows desktop and allows the installation of new apps without requiring you to restart your PC.
- You can run Android apps and games in a window of your choice on Windows, and it’s a lot like running them on your phone. Microsoft is testing a new design for toast notifications in the WSA that is more intuitive and much less intrusive than the existing progress toast.
- You can run Android apps alongside apps from the Windows Store and control the user education dialogue for apps.
- WSA has turned VPNs into a one-step process; they’re not just for techies anymore. It also allows you to connect to VPNs on Android.
- It’s easy to avoid scrolling down if you use a browser that supports a scroll bar, but if you use a Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) environment, you won’t have that luxury.
- WSA allows you to run Android apps on your Windows 10 PC, but it has its challenges. One of the most frustrating issues is the “No internet available” notification that can sometimes appear before an app launches.
- Amazon AppStore is now available to users outside the US for the first time. Furthermore, Amazon is expanding the number of available apps to include the top apps of the German Google Play Store.
- Windows Subsystem for Android users can now enjoy the whole Android text selection experience. It’s a feature that’s been requested for a long time, and we’re glad to ship it as part of the latest Windows Insider build.
- It allows developers to run Android apps natively on Windows and the new Windows Subsystem for Android Settings app to interact with these Android apps.
- However, the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA), the software they use to make this possible, is still in beta.
- WSA has fixed an issue where certain apps automatically restart before you can save your data.
- Microsoft has fixed a significant issue in the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) Settings app that caused it to crash.
- Android texts are not displaying correctly on Microsoft Edge. This has been an issue for a while, and it has now been fixed. Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) is the new feature that allows you to run Android apps within a Windows environment.
