With the inclusion of ARM-powered M1 chips, Apple was able to run iOS apps natively on the new macOS BigSur. First impressions of iOS apps on MacBooks weren’t great as people are used to controlling them with their touch input rather than their mouse and keyboard. Apple may include touch screens in subsequent MacBooks, but current versions do not support them.
On the flip side, it looks like Microsoft has been playing around with the same concept for quite some time now as well. You could already run Android apps (partially) through the Link to Windows feature which allows your Android apps to connect to your Windows PC. However, the implementation is not always perfect, with issues such as disconnections occurring frequently.
According to 9to5Google, Microsoft’s “Project Latte” could allow developers to port their Android applications to the Windows machine. Android apps on Windows would use the Windows Subsystem for Linux added with the Android Subsystem to run natively. Reports suggest that the “Latte Project” does not support Google Play services, which is essential for many applications. Developers should limit the app’s dependency on Play Services for the app to run. This would limit the number of applications available at launch, but the number will gradually increase depending on the success of the project.
On the other hand, there are Windows laptops that offer touch input. Still, a lot of devices use a mouse and keyboard, which is not ideal for Android apps unless the apps support those input devices. Second, the implementation would take a long time. The initial release will be in fall 2021, so expect at least 2.3 years of development, and then you can run most Android apps natively on your Windows machine.
