Full Support For Android Apps In Windows 10 May Appear Later This Year


Recommended Posts



After Microsoft canceled the so-called Astoria project, the company began to look for other options for implementing support for Android applications in Windows 10. Microsoft moved farthest in this regard with Samsung by streaming of apps launched on a smartphone through My Phone app; but the company decided to go furthermore.


The idea promoted by the Latte project is to allow the developer of Android applications to package their apps and games in the proprietary MSIX installer format. Reportedly, the project is based on the Windows Subsystem for Linux and primarily involves the placement of Android applications in the Windows Store directory. That is, you will not be able to directly run the APK on Windows 10. According to the source, the Latte project will finally allow Microsoft to bridge the gap in the number of applications for Windows and Android.


It is not yet clear when we will see the real implementation of the Latte project in custom Windows 10; but at best, full support for Android applications in Microsoft OS will appear at the end of this year.





AdDuplex has published the results of a recent study of the prevalence of different versions of the Windows 10 operating system.


As of the end of February, the most recent major Windows 10 update (October update labeled 20H2) gained 13.6% share; however, it could not overtake Windows 10 1909 fall 2019 update from 26.8% and break into second place.


The first place continues to be occupied by the May update of last year Windows 10 2004 with a share of 41.8%. And if the share of Windows 10 1909 fell slightly over the month from 31.2% in January; then Windows 10 2004 and Windows 10 20H2 increased by 2 and 3.2 percentage points.

This is getting more interesting and if it's that going to happen, then Android emulators like Bluestacks and so on are no longer required.
