Want to Use Android Apps on Windows 11? These are the conditions

 


Microsoft started adding Android app support in Windows 11. However, there are conditions that must be met to do so.

Android application support in Windows 11 is one of the superior features of the OS made by Microsoft. However, its presence is done gradually, for example, there are only 1,000 applications from the Amazon AppStore that can be installed, including sideloaded APKs.


In the guide, Microsoft lays out the requirements that users must meet to install Android applications on Windows 11.



There are three important conditions that must be met, first the minimum RAM capacity is 8GB, but ideally it is 16GB. Second is a solid state drive or SSD, and third is an enabled virtualization option.


This 8GB requirement is fairly high, considering that the minimum RAM to run Windows 11 is only 4GB. Likewise with SSD obligations, because Windows 11 can basically be run using an HDD (which incidentally has a lower speed).


However, Android applications are not designed for computer devices, either laptops or desktops. Plus, Android apps obviously can't run natively on Windows 11.


As a result, running Android applications on Windows 11 requires virtualization and emulators, which require higher hardware requirements, such as at least 8GB of RAM.


Then about the SSD, even though Windows 11 can run well on the HDD, Android applications are made to run on faster flash memory, in this case the SSD. So if it is run on a slower HDD, it will certainly hamper its performance.


Previously, Microsoft also planned to change the requirements for using Windows 11 Pro, which required having an internet connection and a Microsoft account.


Previously, similar rules were also applied by Microsoft for Windows 10 Home users, where users could not go through the Microsoft account login process during the installation process.
