Microsoft suddenly released Amazon Appstore beta version in Microsoft Store
The highly anticipated Android subsystem function has now arrived in Windows 11, but users must participate in the Beta channel to download installation packages.
And because the channels of the Dev version and the Beta version are different, only the Beta channel is currently available, and the Dev channel needs to be patient for the time being.
If you are using the official version of Windows 11, you can participate in the Beta channel, and you can download and install the Android system if you meet other requirements.
In addition, during the test period, the Amazon store only provided 50 Android apps for users to test, but some netizens said that they can also sideload other stores to unlock the app library.
1. The Windows 11 Beta channel must be used, and the development channel is temporarily not supported. The system version must be Windows 11 Build 22000.xxx series
2. The processor currently supports Intel, AMD, and other ARM processors, currently only available in the United States, but users can modify the region in the settings.
3. BIOS/UEFI virtualization must be enabled, because the Android subsystem itself is implemented through virtualization, and it cannot be loaded after installation if virtualization is not turned on
4. You must register a US Amazon account to use the Amazon Android App Store. If you cannot register a login account, you may not be able to log in to the store to download apps, etc.
Go to the Microsoft Store to download and install the Amazon App Store. After installing Amazon App Store, the Android subsystem will be installed at the same time. After the installation, you may need to restart the system to take effect.
At this point, you can open the Amazon App Store to download the applications and games that are currently on the shelves. Microsoft hopes to use these applications and games for early testing.
In terms of functions, the Android subsystem already supports the Windows 11 native notification center, and also supports the use of shortcut key combinations such as Alt+Tab for window switching.
In addition, for the convenience of users, Microsoft also provides a clipboard sharing function, which means you can copy and paste with Windows 11 in the Android subsystem.
