Microsoft appears to be testing Android app compatibility on Xbox


Microsoft appears to be testing Android app support for Xbox.

It is based on a listing from the Windows Subsystem Android app (thanks, XDA) in Windows 11 Microsoft Store.

In its System Requirements, the app is listed as available for Windows and Xbox One.

Microsoft has not confirmed that support for Android apps is coming to Xbox and this app is currently only intended for internal testing purposes. There is no guarantee that it will ever be made public.

Still, it’s fun to speculate on the potential if Xbox could run Android apps. Could we finally get a home console that can be used as a generic PC? Maybe I could start writing my articles in Microsoft Office and then join a Zoom meeting.

Of course, the most sensible reason Microsoft might want to add Android support to Xbox is to support the vast library of Android games through the platform. The question is whether Xbox gamers are really interested in playing mobile games on their console.

Microsoft has announced support for Android applications as one of the key features of Windows 11 again in June, although this has been postponed from the operating system release date of October 5 until later in 2022.
