    2. The Computer must support virtualization and be enabled in BIOS/UEFI and Optional Features.
    3. The device must have at least 8GB of RAM and SSD as a Storage device. For WSA, a Hard drive is not supported.
    4. The Store version must be 22110.1402.6.0 or higher. Go to Store Library to update.
    5. The PC's Region must be set to the US.

    If these requirements are met, follow the steps below to set up and use Windows Subsystem for Android.

    Getting started with Windows Subsystem for Android

    1. Open the Amazon App store from this link.
    2. Click Install. It would download Amazon AppStore and Windows subsystem for Android.
    3. When done, you would see the Windows subsystem for Android on your app list, together with Amazon AppStore.
    4. Open the Amazon AppStore, and sign in with your US-based Amazon Account on the screen that shows.
    5. Locate your App in the catalogue and click Install. At the time of writing, only around 50 apps are available in the Store, but Microsoft will update the list over time.

    1. Files show the files which Apps download to the Device.
    2. Subsystem Screen reader helps accessibility wise, like screen reading on in Android apps you plan to run.
    3. Developer mode helps you to sideload an APK file manually using ADB. See .
    4. Resources: If the Subsystem is selected As needed, no resources are used in the Background, so as a result, apps open slowly. If a continuous option is selected, resources continue to be used in the Background, and Apps open quickly.

    To conclude, these steps can help you get started with running Android apps using Windows Subsystem for Android on Windows 11. Hopefully, it would be available for the general public soon.

    In addition, if you are outside the United States and wish to try out WSA manually, you can follow this guide:

  3. Problems with the Android Subsystem

    Hello everyone in the forum,



    I'm having a little problem.



    After I set the region to US, I didn't find "Amazon Marketplace" in the Microsoft store, and there was no way to install the Android subsystem with the help of this software.



    It still doesn't work after I've tried switching regions several times, but this is normal on my other two computers. I've created a virtual machine and can't find it in the virtual machine either.



    I saw a similar thread on the forum, but it didn't seem to fix it.



    But my problem is different, I tried many times and gave up, but one day I suddenly found that there is no amazon store in my computer, but the android subsystem appeared in my computer out of thin air.



    This surprised me. I tried to use the subsystem, turned on the developer mode, and installed the APK installer and WSAtools in the Microsoft Store. These two applications did not allow me to install my Android software smoothly. They upgrade I need to open the android subsystem, but the subsystem is already running and developer mode is turned on for them to use ADB to connect to the subsystem.



    Why does this happen? Obviously the subsystem is already running. Am I missing some setting?
