How to Install Android Apps on Windows 11


With Windows 11, the fantasy of using Android applications on your PC finally became a reality. This fascinating feature has a lot of promise. You may learn how to set it up and download your first Android app or game from this guide.

What You’ll Need

In the stable channel of Windows 11 as of February 2022, Android apps are accessible—but only in the US. If you satisfy the prerequisites for Windows 11, you also satisfy those for Android applications. Before continuing, make sure to check for Windows updates and install any that are available.

Second, hardware virtualization has to be enabled on your Windows 11 computer. This is required since Windows 11 effectively runs Android on a virtual machine. By selecting the “Performance” option in the Task Manager, you may see whether virtualization is enabled on your computer. (You may launch the Task Manager by using Ctrl+Shift+Esc.)

You will probably need to turn on Intel VT-X in the UEFI firmware of your machine if hardware virtualization isn’t enabled (BIOS). Instead, check the UEFI firmware settings panel for AMD-V if your system has an AMD processor.

Next, check sure the Microsoft Store is running the most recent version. Update every app on the “Library” page by opening the Microsoft Store.

You can go forward if everything checks out. Before we continue, it’s a good idea to reboot your PC if you installed any updates to get to this point.
