How often do you use the Amazon Appstore Preview on Windows 11?
The Amazon Appstore is here for Windows 11, but how often do you use it?
Microsoft shipped Android app support for Windows 11 this week. The feature is in preview and allows people to download over 1,000 Android apps through the Amazon Appstore. Microsoft has tested Android app support with Insiders for months, but since it's now out for general users, we'd like to get a gauge for how often people actually use the Amazon Appstore on Windows 11.
With support for the Amazon Appstore, Windows gains access to a library of mobile games and applications. There aren't as many apps available as there would be with Google Play Store support, but it's still a sizeable set. Amazon's own apps, such as Kindle and Audible, and some popular games are now available on Windows 11 PCs.
There are limitations that will prevent some PC owners from being able to use Android apps on their devices. For now, only users in the U.S. can install Android apps from the Amazon Appstore. There's also a set of minimum requirements that PCs need to meet, including having at least 8GB of RAM and an SSD. Such hardware cutoffs aren't terribly aggressive by today's computing standards, but even so, they do limit who can utilize the feature.
If you haven't tried out the Amazon Appstore but would like to, you can follow our guide on how to get started with Android apps on Windows 11.
While there are over 1,000 apps from the Amazon Appstore currently available, some notable apps are missing. To fill those gaps, you can sideload Android apps onto Windows 11.
