WSA (Windows Subsystem for Android, Android subsystem) is one of the special features of Windows
11. Due to the high degree of integration with the Windows system, WSA still has a completely different experience from other emulators such as BlueStacks. And considering the close relationship between Windows 11 and Windows 10 (after all, the Windows 10 update code-named Sun Valley eventually became Windows 11), it is really unreasonable that this feature can only be used on Windows 11.
Citing news from Liliputing
, through the efforts of some developers, Windows 10 can now use WSA, and there is more than one method.
The first is a method called WSAPatch
developed by ACh Sulfate
, detailed installation instructions can be found on Github. The project provides a compiled patch with a size of 1.06MB, so you don’t have to use Visual Studio to compile it yourself. But in general, there are quite a lot of settings to adjust, and the WSA file needs to be obtained through the MagiskOnWSA
The second method comes from ga11ga11 of XDA Developers because he has already provided a packaged WSA compressed package with a capacity of more than 700 MB, so the operation steps are correspondingly reduced a lot. However, it should be noted that whether it is WSAPatch or ga11ga11 method, WSL2 needs to be enabled
In addition, even if WSA can be installed on Windows 10, it still needs to meet certain configuration requirements, such as large enough memory. Considering that the installation methods of the above two methods are more than 5 steps, it seems that for ordinary players, the free upgrade of Windows 11 is more convenient and quicker.
