With this trick, you can install Google Play on Windows 11 WSA
Microsoft’s Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) is currently available on the Beta stream or channel. As the title suggests, it lets you run Android apps on your Windows 11 PC. But, due to the lack of an official means to install Google Play on WSA, it can only support a limited number of apps.
The developer described his approach on Github and stated that it is still in the works. To install Google Play on your WSA, follow the instructions in his repo. You’ll also need 7-zip and WSL 2 on your Windows 11 PC, in addition to WSA.
That’s all has changed now, due to a new hack by ADeltaX, which brings Google Play to Windows 11.
Some users may find the instructions difficult to follow, although ADeltaX has said that they are constantly upgrading the repo to make it easier to grasp. If you’re seeking for more options, you may try this method that allows you to sideload Android applications on WSA.
WSA on Windows 11 currently just allows you to download applications from the Amazon App Store, for those who are unfamiliar. Moreover, the Amazon App Store, which operates within the Microsoft Store, is linked to the WSA in some way. In short, installing Amazon App Store on Windows 11 would also install WSA components, which will be uninstalled when the app store is deleted.
For the time being, there is a how-to video that you may watch while following the instructions. Remember that WSA is a new feature, and the hack was created by a third-party developer. As a result, there may be unforeseen hazards.
WSA is a concept comparable to Microsoft’s Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), which allows Linus distros to operate on Windows 10/11 pcs. Microsoft’s future ambitions include integrating compatibility for other third-party app stores and marketplace such as the Epic Games Store, which is said to be coming to the Microsoft Store.
