If you've installed Windows 11,the most recent version of Microsoft's operating system for PCs,you may be wondering how to run Android apps on your computer, because while Microsoft promised that you'd be able to run those apps through the Amazon Appstore for Android, the feature hasn't yet been released. However, you can still download and run Android apps and games on your Windows PC until Microsoft adds the capability in a future update.
(It's also worth noting that the Amazon Appstore for Android does not have all of the apps that Google Play does.) As a result, even if you wait for the update, some of your favorite apps may still be unavailable.)
We'll use Android emulators instead of Amazon's Appstore. Here are a few of the best emulators we found, with the caveat that because Windows 11 is new, all of these emulators will have bugs. However, software updates should bring more stability over time.
- It also allows you to quickly change your device profile to run apps that are only available on specific devices. Some games, such as PUBG Mobile, are best run in the developer's own emulators, but Bluestacks works well with the majority of apps and games.Bluestacks has been around for a long time and has evolved significantly over the years. This emulator allows you to download and install apps from Google Play, which is a huge plus, and many of its best features are geared toward gamers. So, if you want to use a keyboard and mouse to play your favorite Android games,Bluestacks is an excellent choice because it allows you to create macros and scripts that map your favorite actions to keyboard shortcuts, saving you time while gaming.
- GameLoop is owned by GameLoop, a Chinese tech giant whose focus, as the name suggests, is on game play. Because Tencent published PUBG Mobile and a slew of other mobile games, GameLoop's primary goal is to provide you with the best experience possible while playing those games. It also has an anti-cheat system, which is useful if you want to avoid hackers in your games.
- NoxPlayer is also primarily aimed at gamers, so if you're having trouble with Bluestacks or GameLoop, give NoxPlayer a try. It has the features you need for gaming, such as keyboard and mouse support, macro recording, and the ability to run multiple games at once.
