Currently, the method used by Windows users to run Android applications is to install an emulator such as Bluestacks. But it seems that Microsoft will now be making it easier for users to run Android applications on their OS.
Based on a report from Windows Central, it is reported that Microsoft plans to release a feature that allows Windows 10 users to be able to run Android applications directly.
It is stated that these major features will be presented in the fall of 2021. However, it is not yet known whether all Android applications can run smoothly or not.
This is very possible considering that presently Microsoft’s relationship with Android is quite close and Microsoft has also distributed some of their services such as Microsoft Office on the Android platform via the Google Play Store.
Windows 10 users can also run Android applications directly through the Your Phone application which is connected to a smartphone with the Samsung brand. Even though it is more classified as mirroring than running applications on Windows 10, at least it allows users to open Android applications smoothly without using an emulator at all.
Until now, it is not certain how Microsoft will bring this feature. Because most Android applications require Google Play Services and how do users use the Android application if there is no Google Play Store?
