Microsoft Windows 11 Android apps

Microsoft Windows 11 Android apps

Microsoft yesterday announced that Android apps are coming to Windows 11. Consumers will be able to find their favorite Android apps from the new Amazon App Store section that will be available inside the revamped Microsoft Store app.

Android apps support in Windows 11 is based on Intel Bridge Technology. Intel Bridge Technology is a runtime post-compiler that enables applications to run natively on x86-based devices, including running those applications on Windows.

Intel’s multi-architecture XPU strategy provides the right engines for the right workloads by integrating leading CPU cores, graphics technology, artificial intelligence accelerators, image processors and more, in a single, verified solution.

For ARM devices like Surface Pro X, Android apps will have no issues since all the Android apps are natively built for ARM-based devices. For AMD-based x86 devices, Microsoft will be using the same Intel Bridge Technology to support Android apps. We have to appreciate Intel for providing the Bridge technology to improve the overall x86 ecosystem.
