When Microsoft first unveiled Windows 11, we have to say that the feature that jumped out was the fact that users could actually officially install Android apps on their computers, an interesting feature and strategy for Microsoft.
Now, the company has officially started to allow users to use Android apps on Windows 11, and for those who are curious as to what kind of requirements they’ll need to be able to run these apps, Microsoft has published a system requirements page that you might want to check out.
According to Microsoft, for starters users will need to have a computer powered by either an Intel Core i3 8th gen or later, an AMD Ryzen 3000 or better, or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8c or better. Users will also need at least 8GB of RAM, but 16GB is recommended, as well as a SSD which seems to be a requirement and not a recommendation.
For the most part we reckon that these are pretty low requirements so for the most part, the majority of users who have a Windows 11 computer or have upgraded to Windows 11 shouldn’t have any issues. Android apps will be available for download via the Amazon Appstore which can be downloaded through the Microsoft Store. Users will also need an Amazon Appstore account.
