Native Android app emulation was one thing that Windows had been missing until Microsoft announced last year that the feature would be included in the launch of Windows 11. They started testing and released the updated version of Windows 11 in February, which includes the Amazon Appstore that will allow you to run Android apps on your PC.
Installing the store
After updating Windows 11, the Amazon Appstore will not automatically pop in the start menu; there are a few steps to follow before getting apps up and running.
Here are the steps to install the app on Windows 11 so you can use Android apps.
1. Update your Windows 11
Check if your Windows has the latest version and Microsoft Store is up to date. As a reference, Amazon Appstore was launched on the 22110.1402.9.0 version of Microsoft Store. Make sure you have the same or higher version.
You’ll also need to compare your system specifications with the requirement list of Amazon Appstore. If your Microsoft or Windows store is not up to date, click on the library button in the bottom left corner and click “Get Update” for the latest version.
2. Download the app
3. Sign in with your Amazon account
Once you’ve downloaded the Amazon Appstore, a splash screen will open, asking you to sign in with your Amazon account. If you have one, click the sign-in or sign-up button to create an Amazon account.
The Amazon Appstore for Windows 11 will soon be available in 31 more countries, and there'll be over 20,000 Android apps and games available on the store.https://t.co/r2TcUb3fjg
