Just last week, Microsoft rolled out the Amazon Appstore preview for American users. Although this feature has been available for Windows Insiders for quite a while now, it is now rolling out to all users who own devices running Windows 11. Moreover, the company has disclosed the minimum requirements for your Windows 11 PC to support Android apps and the Amazon Appstore.
Microsoft’s FAQ website has listed the major requirements that your device must meet to be able to run mobile apps. While it doesn’t mention all the devices that support the feature, it does note that you’re good to go as long as your PC runs Windows 11 and meets the following criteria—most importantly, your device should run Windows 11 version 21H2 or newer and have at least 8GB of RAM along with a processor that is officially supported by Microsoft.
Minimum Requirements To Run Android Apps on Windows 11
Here’s the full list of minimum specs required to run Android apps on Windows 11:
|RAM||Minimum 8 GB |

|Processor||Intel Core i3 8th Gen or above|

This update includes nearly 1000 apps, including Amazon’s Audible and Kindle, as well as third-party apps such as Subway Surfers and Khan Academy Kids. However, Google Play Store is still sorely missing from the update.
