Microsoft has released a public preview of the Amazon Appstore for Windows 11, this way users will be able to download and use Android applications.
Windows 11: Try out Android apps with Amazon Appstore Preview in The Microsoft Store
The official launch will be relatively modest, with only about 1000 applications available to the general public. That’s just a sliver of the apps you can find on the Play Store. Some notable apps mentioned in today’s blog post include War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, Audible, and Khan Academy Kids. There’s no hint of popular apps like TikTok in this update, despite the fact that they were previously announced.
However, you’ll be able to sideload Android APKs if that’s your preference, which may help you bridge the gap. Amazon claims it’s testing new apps for inclusion in the preview and will add more over time. Still, it seems doubtful that all of your favorite apps will be available when the Amazon Appstore becomes more widely accessible.

For those who haven’t tried it yet, you’ll have to update the Microsoft Store. You’ll need to download the Amazon Appstore after finding an app or game, then install games on any PC that is running Windows 11.
