Amazon Appstore shows up in the Microsoft Store, but you can’t have it yet.
Amazon Appstore shows up in the Microsoft Store
Amazon Appstore shows up in the Microsoft Store: The last couple of weeks ago, the Windows Subsystem for Android showed up in the Microsoft Store, even if it did not do anything for people who downloaded it. Now, Microsoft leakster WalkingCat is spotted, another piece of the Android app puzzle has arrived. The listing for the Amazon Appstore has appeared in the Microsoft Store.
Apart, the general public is likely going to be waiting until next year. In June 2021, When Microsoft first announced Windows 11 back, it also announced that the OS supports Android apps. But when Microsoft announced the OS’s release date, it confirmed a delay in Android support. Both Amazon and Microsoft have held to the idea that Insiders will get it this year.
Here is how it will work. Android apps on Windows11 will use the Windows Subsystem for Android. That’s all you want, as, like any other app, you can install an APK from any website.
However, there is also going to be Amazon Appstore integration with the Microsoft Store. Once you download or install an app from that listing, it will redirect you to the actual Amazon App store, and you will get the app from there.
Amazon Appstore support may come as part of a broader initiative from Microsoft to make third-party app stores first-class citizens on Windows. It is just that this one happens to be the partner to bring Android app support to Windows 11.
The Redmond firm has confirmed that we may see other app stores integrate similarly with the Microsoft Store.As of right now, to download the Amazon Appstore from the listing, you need a redeem code. It also would not even work unless you had the Windows Subsystem for Android.
Same as Windows Subsystem for Android listing, it was discovered two weeks ago that Windows 11 build 220000 or higher and an Intel, ARM, or AMD processor are the Minimum requirements given in the listing. It says that 32-bit processors support it, but that probably makes them 32-bit builds since 32-bit versions of Windows don’t exist anymore.
Today’s news means that we are one step closer to public testing. The official update at the end of August is still that it will arrive in the coming months.
