If you are someone who didn’t have an Android smartphone in the early days, I am sure you must have tried the Bluestacks emulator that allows you to run Android Apps on your PC. However, by next year you won’t need an emulator to run these Android Apps because Microsoft is planning to bring Android App support directly to Windows 10.
Zac Bowden from Windows Central reported that Microsoft still wants to bring Android Apps to Windows and if this happens we can expect it to see during the Fall of 2021 when Windows is expected to get a complete revamp. If this happens, most of our favorite Android Apps would become available on the Microsoft Store making the Windows experience much better.
If this happens, Microsoft will be giving tough competition to the ChromeOS by Google that allows users to run Android Apps and Linux Packages directly on the Chromebook. As of now, there is no information on how Microsoft plans to do this because if there is no Play Store running and the Apps come in a different “Android” section on the Microsoft Store users might have to pay some extra charges for the same apps due to two different platforms.
Apps like Uber, Booking.com, and Gmail require Google Play Services so we don’t know if Microsoft will offer them along with the latest update or we just have to settle without them.
However, it is great to see that something like this is being planned for Windows users because recently we saw the latest macOS got the support to run iPhone and iPad apps directly. Are you excited for the next major Windows 10 update which comes out next year? Let us know in the comments below.
