Windows Subsystem for Android will not support Xbox
Earlier, Microsoft engineers accidentally uploaded the Windows Subsystem for Android under development to Microsoft Store. Users can download the system but cannot use it normally.
But it is worth noting that in the application support, Microsoft marked the platform as including Xbox One, which means that Xbox One users can also use the Windows Subsystem for Android functions.
However, this may just be an error flagged by Microsoft engineers inadvertently, because Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 11 Subsystem for Android has no plans to support game console users.
Although the Microsoft engineer wrote in the application description: “Microsoft Confidential – For testing purposes – Please do not take screenshots or communicate about the content.“
Obviously, if it is a normal application installation package, it cannot be so small, and unpacking the installation package can find that the installation package only has a placeholder description file.
This means that Microsoft’s Windows Subsystem for Android released by Microsoft engineers “inadvertently” is only used to occupy a place in the Microsoft Store.
So this does not mean that Microsoft is close to completing the development of the Windows Subsystem for Android or preparing to release it. In fact, we still need to wait until next spring to test it.
Windows Central contacted Microsoft to get a reply on this matter. Microsoft officially stated that the company has no plans to bring Windows Subsystem for Android to the Xbox series. However, in the future, Windows Central believes that Xbox is unlikely to support the Windows Subsystem for Android.
So I also remind Xbox series users not to expect this feature. If you need to use it, you should run Android applications through Windows 11.
