How to Run Android APK on Windows?
As we all know that the new Windows 11 has arrived. It is a very special version of Windows because it allows us to sideload our applications and games from other devices like Android phones. We can now run these APK files on our Windows devices easily. For that purpose, we require a special type of application known as the APK Installer on WSA.
WSA stands for Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA). It allows the users to sideload various Android apps on their Windows devices. It allows this by creating a virtual machine engine on their Windows device that installs these APK files first. The APK Installer takes the APKs of the popular applications and games through the Amazon Webstore which also contains the Android format-based APK applications. Then it converts these APK files through virtualization into the virtual machine engine so that can run on the Windows device. It is only supported on the latest version of Windows 11 and Microsoft Store.
