Here's How Microsoft Presents Android Apps on Windows 11
Geekers -  Windows 11 was officially announced by Microsoft a few days ago with a number of improvements and new features, including a new Microsoft Store and support for Android apps. Microsoft has confirmed support for Android apps on Windows 11, but there's a story behind it

Microsoft, in realizing support for Android applications in Windows 11, is partnering with Amazon to enable Amazon Appstore integration. With the arrival of Windows 11, Microsoft is introducing support for Android apps by working with Intel and Amazon.

Microsoft in this case does not use emulator technology. Instead, users' desktop devices will be able to run Android apps downloaded from the Microsoft Store natively, or directly. Although basically the download process is supported by the Amazon Appstore. In other words, Microsoft is bringing the Amazon Appstore, which is already available for Android, to Windows 11.Â

The Android category in the Windows 11 native store will be supported by Amazon and the integration from the Appstore will open up new opportunities for Amazon developers, particularly in terms of the economy according to Microsoft.

“The expanded selection of mobile applications in the Microsoft Store is supported by the Amazon Appstore,� Amazon said

It is not known how clear, whether developers will be able to publish applications directly to the Microsoft Store, but what is certain, users will only be able to find Android applications through the Amazon Appstore only by using Windows 11.

It should be noted that not all applications will work on Windows 11. For example, applications that use Google services will obviously not work. Likewise, not all applications in the Amazon Appstore can be automatically available on Windows. The process requires action from Amazon's developers and more details will be revealed later this year.

For now, application support in Windows 11 requires Intel's Bridge technology. This technology is a final runtime compiler that can enable mobile applications to run natively on X86-based devices from Intel and AMD.

In addition to the compiler, Microsoft also uses Intel's dual architecture called XPU with a strategy to improve the experience by dividing the load between Android and Windows programs. This will also enable deeper integration with Windows CPU and graphics loads

It's also possible that Windows Subsystem for Linux will also be used in the background, to enhance the experience of Android apps on Windows.
