Getting started

To get started:
  • Your PC needs to be in the Dev or Beta Channels and meet these hardware requirements.
  • You may need to enable virtualization for your PC’s BIOS/UEFI. Click here for a guide on how to enable this on your PC.
  • Make sure you’re running Microsoft Store version 22110.1402.6.0 or higher. You can check for updates for Store by going to your Library and clicking the “Get updates” button.
  • Your PCs’ region must be set to the U.S.
  • Your PC must be in the Dev and Beta Channel. If you are new to the Windows Insider Program, click here to get started with registration and joining your PC to the Dev and Beta Channel.
  • You will also need to have a U.S.-based Amazon account to use the Amazon Appstore.
After that, just click here to go to the Microsoft Store which will guide you through the steps to verify if your device meets the minimum system requirements, setup your environment, and discover right away the new Android apps and games.

The new component that powers Android apps on Windows 11 through the Amazon Appstore is called the Windows Subsystem for Android™ and you will see a listing for it under your Start menu where you can adjust specific settings for the experience. The version of Windows Subsystem for Android™ being released today is version 1.7.32815.0. Updates for the Windows Subsystem for Android™ will automatically come through the Microsoft Store. If the PC requires a restart, the Amazon Appstore will automatically launch after restart, or you can launch it from the Start menu.
