The Amazon Appstore for Android apps has now made its appearance in Windows 11’s Microsoft Store. Its listing was spotted by the well-known leaker WalkingCat. To download the Amazon Appstore, you will need to redeem a code or have a gift card, which (obviously) isn’t available for anyone yet. The Amazon Appstore making an appearance in the Microsoft Store suggests that Microsoft is readying for its release sometime in the next few weeks with an upcoming Windows 11 Insider build release.
Microsoft had confirmed earlier that it’s working closely with Amazon and Intel to bring Android app support to Windows 11. However, the company had mentioned that the Android support on Windows 11 is delayed until 2022. Microsoft is set to release Windows 11 on October 5, 2021, but this version will not feature Amazon Appstore. Microsoft might release the preview version of this new feature sometime in the next month.
The Amazon Appstore is a new feature announced by Microsoft in Windows 11. It will allow users to download and run Android apps on Windows 11 laptops and PCs without a need for any emulator like Bluestack. With Windows 11, users will also have the ability to sideload APK files and install Android apps and games. However, now that the release of Amazon Appstore has been pushed back to 2022, users will have to wait for a long to play their favorite titles like Call of Duty: Mobile, BGMI, Free Fire on their laptops or PCs.
