    Here’s how Windows 10 will run Android apps without Google Play Store


    Microsoft’s Android apps project for Windows 10 is reportedly codenamed “Latte” and it will use Windows Subsystem for Linux as a compatibility layer. On top of Windows Subsystem for Linux, Microsoft plans to use the Android subsystem to enable native support for Android apps.

    Windows Subsystem for Linux is required for running Linux binary executables natively on Windows 10. Microsoft has also enabled support for a real Linux kernel in Windows 10 to facilitate advanced Linux experience, and now Android.

    Android apps support for Windows 10 is likely to arrive in the second half of 2021 as part of the major Windows 10 21H2 upgrade.

    Project Latte will allow developers to convert their Android apps into MSIX format, which is a Windows-only package format that provides a modern packaging experience.

    As you may know already, anyone can take the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) code and make their own version of Android or can use it as the basis for their own services or platforms.

    In this case, Microsoft is planning to take the Android subsystem and Android Runtime to translate the app’s bytecode into native apps for Windows 10.

    Developers will be able to submit their converted MSIX package in the Microsoft Store, but there’s a catch – the converted apps will lack support for Google services.

    Google services are very handy, but most apps don’t have to use them. Android subsystem is enough to run all Google APIs independent mobile apps and Microsoft might allow developers to replace Google Maps, Gmail, Calendar, and other services integration by its own products, such as Windows Maps and Outlook.

    If the top Microsoft leadership approves the project and it meets the company’s internal expectations, Windows Store would soon see Android apps available to run, alongside UWP, PWAs and converted desktop apps.

    However, apps sideloaded by users manually may not work correctly. This is because Microsoft is using some kind of compatibility layer and developers will be required to recompile their apps using a ‘software solution’ offered by the tech giant.

    $.10 android apps

    Google Wallet just doesnt want to cooperate with me, but I have been able to pick some of them up through the Amazon Android App Store, which has been price matching a couple of the apps and offering some of their own 10 cent apps as well.

    Installing Google Play Store App

    Hi Katherine

    The Google Play Store only supplies Android apps, they will not run natively on Windows 10 . . .

    If you want to run Android Apps on Windows 10 you will need to install an Android Emulator. Currently the best 2 Android Emulators are Nox and BlueStacks

    Google Play Store

    The Google Play Store app is designed to run on the android operating system. android is different than the Windows 10 operating system. Therefore, an android app will not run natively on Windows 10 and it cannot be installed. There are third party android
    emulators which will run android apps in the Windows 10 environment. What exactly are you trying to do?
