Will install Android apps directly on Windows 11 without the need for the store

One of the most interesting features that Microsoft released this week with Windows 11 was native support for Android apps. This feature opens this system even further and brings a range of new apps instantly.

Microsoft has prepared its entire system to have everything inside its app store, as expected. However, the question remains about the possibility of installing directly. Confirmation has now come directly from a well-known Microsoft insider.


For many years Microsoft has wanted to bring mobile apps to Windows 10 and now to Windows 11. These projects were never fully completed, with a preference for Android, even because the Apple system is closed to these scenarios. .

If until now there was a need for a connection between a PC and a smartphone, as we have seen in the My Phone app, everything will change. Microsoft wants these apps to run natively, using only local resources and not as a smartphone reflection.

To bring security to this entire process, Microsoft decided to team up with Amazon and its app store. Even though it’s not a common and recurrent Android base, this app store has a very large offer and a very high degree of trust for users.

The question that most users were left with this ad is whether the apps can be loaded outside of this store, Now, and clarifying this scenario, Miguel de Icaza revealed that it will be possible to install these apps directly on Windows 11.

It was not clear how this process will be carried out or what requirements will have to be met. The presence of the APK will be mandatory, but there may have to be conversions and other associated processes already within Windows 11.

This is great news for Windows 11 and its users. Doors to other stores and other apps can be opened. However, it can also be a door that opens up to all the security problems known to be possible.
