Almost six long years after Windows 10 replaced the 8.1 version of the world’s most popular computer OS that came out less than two years earlier, Windows 11 is official at last, which… shouldn’t be of much interest to our mobile-only readers.
But in a completely unexpected new move to make PCs hip again, Microsoft is “pumped” to announce the impending arrival of Android apps on Windows computers among many other changes to the operating system a lot of folks love to hate.
With so few details shared by Microsoft on this particular project in its otherwise extensive Windows 11 announcement, we’re left concerned that Intel’s involvement means AMD-powered laptops and desktops will either be excluded or seriously disadvantaged in terms of official support.
By the way, if you want names, TikTok, Kindle Reader (duh!), Game of War – Fire Age, and Khan Academy Kids are on the (very) short list of Android apps essentially confirmed for an official Windows expansion in 2021, with “more” information (hopefully, a lot more) “about this experience” set to be made public “in the coming months.”
