One of the cool things about Microsoft’s new Windows operating system is that it will be possible to run Android apps. It is a pity that this is not how we thought at first.

Panas Pany, director of Windows operating systems and devices at Microsoft, called it a small surprise. Windows 11 announcement Because Android applications will already be available in this version of the operating system, Windows 11 will be able to run them natively.

This all sounds good, but no one thinks it means that we will be able to download apps from the Google Play store as usual. For Windows 11, the apps will be available through the Microsoft Store, although the actual download will be through the Amazon App Store. In other words, Microsoft really brought the Amazon app store, already available on Android, to Windows 11.

When we learn about Android apps, Amazon isn’t the first thing that comes to mind, although the e-commerce giant’s Fire platform is actually based on Android. Fire tablet owners can download many Android apps, but unfortunately many big names, including the biggest one, aren’t on Google. The reason is that Amazon’s Android platform and devices are not certified by Google and therefore do not have access to Google Play services. Amazon Appstore is practically a competitor to the Google Play store.

But beyond apps and the Google Play Store, Android apps running on Windows 11 won’t have access to APIs or features that many people know about on their phones, such as location, security, and storage. cloud and more. by some Android apps. Therefore, there will be applications that will not be available or will not work in Windows 11.
