The Android subsystem in Windows 11 allows you to allocate memory for mobile applications

The update was announced on Microsoft’s Github and is labeled WSA 2304. In addition to the possibility to choose the size of the allocated memory, it also brings news in the field of security. Newly includes antivirus verification of APK packages before running and installing them. This should protect users from installing malicious or unverified Android apps. We could also mention the update to a newer Linux kernel (specifically 5.15.94) or support for the so-called Android AppLink. The update also includes performance improvements and bug fixes.

Windows Subsystem for Android

Windows Subsystem for Android (abbreviated as WSA) is software that allows Windows 11 devices to install and run Android applications that are available from the Amazon Appstore. However, with support for ADB and third-party programs such as WSATools, APKs and Android app packages can be sideloaded. This will allow users to install apps outside of the Amazon Appstore as well.

It should be said that there are minimum requirements to use WSA. Microsoft recommends a minimum of 8GB RAM, Intel Core i3 8 Gen or higher, AMD Ryzen 3000 or higher, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8c or higher. Microsoft clearly has big plans for WSA, so we can expect more updates to bring new and useful features in the coming months.
