A page for Windows Subsystem for Android for Windows 11 has been found on the Microsoft Store, with system requirements included.


is launching on October 4. When announced the date earlier this week, it was widely expected app support would ship with the platform. After-all, this was one of the big Windows 11 features Microsoft has been boasting about. However, the company quickly confirmed Android app support will not happen straight away.

Although, Microsoft is certainly not ditching the idea of bringing Android apps to the new Microsoft Store. It seems the company is still working on the integration, which will tap into 's App Marketplace.

Microsoft watcher WalkingCat has found a listing that confirms the Windows Subsystem for Android is still happening. The listing is in the and includes a special page for the Windows Subsystem for Android.

Users can download it from the Microsoft Store, but it shows up on a blank window on Windows 11 previews. In other words, it is not yet ready. As for , it will not even install on the soon-to-be legacy platform.

Other Requirements

That is a little strange because the minimum requirements for installing Windows Subsystem for Android say Windows 10 version 22000.0 or newer. We guess this is a mistake and it means Windows 11 because it runs on the same Beta Channel branch.
