On June 24th, I can achieve the biggest Windows revolution in years. Microsoft is expected to make its new version of Windows known in Spain and the rest of the world, and it is already expected to be Windows 11, Although there is nothing certain about this. However, perhaps one of the biggest new things has leaked: the ability to perform Android apps using a built-in emulator.
As collected by Medium MSPower UserMicrosoft can work on a feature to emulate full Android apps using a native emulator in Windows 11. We won’t need Software External emulators like Android are built into Google’s SDK, but we can do it all in the same system.
It is that an engineer working at Microsoft, Hideyuki Nagase, posted a new update in the Linux subsystem for the Windows code, and among the changes made by Nagase Up to two references to the Android emulator.
Android emulation on Windows
These two notes are as follows: “Android emulator window cannot move when there is no window” and “Android emulator window does not move and hangs when minimized. “. Clear references to an emulator that may soon be accessing the system.
The idea, quite speculative, is that this simulation in the Windows subsystem for Linux was the basis of Bring Android apps to Windows. We couldn’t download it like any other program, of course; They must be downloaded from the Microsoft Store as a file a program Normal. Once downloaded, the Windows 11 emulator will launch it.
It’s not the first time we’ve heard of this; At the end of 2020, rumors indicated that Microsoft was already working on it A project called “Latte Project”; The only requirement for developers is to have to change these packages applications to MSIX, the format Microsoft uses in its Store. In addition to the need to adapt the operation of the application to the desktop system of course.
But there are a lot of issues. Due to the dominance of Android by Google, the vast majority of applications Android users need Google Play services to provide specific services, which will limit many of these services. applications. Moreover, no applications From Google, not even from the Play Store. And finally, the developers They will need to release a specific version of Windows, Add more workload.
While this is true through the Windows Your Phone app, we can emulate Android apps, and we can, but only on certain Samsung Galaxy devices due to the agreement between Microsoft and the Korean company. distance the noise Raised by Satya Nadella speaking of The biggest Windows revolution in “decades”, It would not be rare to see a drastic gesture on the part of the company, such as a hypothetical agreement with Google that would allow the capabilities of this simulation to be extended.
This news comes immediately after the Mac OS Monterey broadcast, a danger to the imminent “revolution” that Nadella evokes because of the interconnection functions. On the other hand, we can see many features of Windows 10X born in Windows 11, then the cancellation suffered by this operating system weeks ago.
