Last week Microsoft released an update that bumps the preview version of the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) to 2211.40000.7.0. In addition to reliability and performance fixes, we’ve added another notable feature. Windows Subsystem for Android has been updated to Android 13.
Essentially, WSA allows you to add Android applications to Windows 11 via the Amazon Appstore, but its use is restricted to certain regions.
Here’s what you should know about this update:
- Windows Subsystem for Android updated to Android 13
- Added new command to shutdown WSA for automation
- Improved boot performance (50%, P10 case)
- Improved mouse click input
- Improved clipboard stability
- Improved application resizing
- Upgrade to Intel Bridge Technology for Android 13
- Improved reliability of media files opened in Windows
- Jumplist entries for applications that support app shortcuts
That said, it will make it easier for users to run Android 13 apps on Windows 11. To access all these features, we recommend signing up for the Windows Subsystem for Android Preview Program.
