Microsoft is killing Android apps on Windows 11

From PC World: Microsoft is unexpectedly killing off its support for Android apps within Windows 11, although you’ll have a year to play games on your Windows tablet until support officially expires.

But if you haven’t already installed support for Android apps, you’re out of luck.

Microsoft isn’t saying exactly why it’s ending support for the Windows Subsystem for Android, though notice was given as part of an official Microsoft developer document that Windows Central noticed. That means that the existing Android app store on Windows, published by Amazon, will cease working.

“Microsoft is ending support for the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA),” Microsoft wrote. “As a result, the Amazon Appstore on Windows and all applications and games dependent on WSA will no longer be supported beginning March 5, 2025. Until then, technical support will remain available to customers.”
