In a new test version of Windows 11, Microsoft is adding support for Android apps.

These programs can then not only be used on a telephone, but also on a computer.

The feature was previously announced for Windows 11, but is not yet available in the operating system.

It is an Insider Preview beta of Windows 11 that is currently only available to American users.

In addition, the computers must be equipped with chips from Qualcomm, AMD or Intel.

Not all Android apps for Windows 11 are available within the test yet.

Fifty apps were selected that work during the trial.

These include the Kindle app (for e-books) and games such as

LEGO DUPLO WORLD

and

Lords Mobile

.

More apps should become available in the coming months.

The apps that work on the computer can be operated with a mouse and keyboard or via a touch-sensitive screen.

Microsoft announced support for Android apps back in June this year when Windows 11 was unveiled.

Although the new operating system is now available, Android app support has been postponed until 2022. There is no specific date yet.
