Last Thursday (2) Location XDA Developers Detection of an add-on to support Android apps in Windows 11. Call “Windows Subsystem for Android”, the app was found in the Microsoft Store and is a non-functional temporary listing, “Reserve a place”.
The novelty was discovered shortly after Microsoft announced that Windows 11 would not be released with Native support for Android apps One of the main features that fans have come to expect. Although the listing indicates that the add-on is still in development, its description does not provide more details about its content.
On your page, the message may read: “Confidential to Microsoft – for testing purposes – do not take screenshots or report content.” In addition, there is another temporary text that includes the supposed Minimum Requirements Component which, however, appears to contain errors and inconsistencies.

According to the listing, the minimum requirement to run the component is: “Windows 10 version 22000.0 or higher; Xbox One”. However, the version mentioned is Windows 11, with 22449.0 being the latest version on developer channel.
Similarly, Microsoft has not suggested that Android apps be compatible with Xbox during its events, which suggests that mentioning it might be more than wrong. This guide is reinforced by the description itself, which details that the component is limited to computers.
With no expected arrival date, Android app compatibility on Windows 11 is still in development and may take some time to be implemented by Microsoft. Its postponement has discouraged some fans of the company, however, it is still a long-awaited feature that stands out among the rest.
