You must use an SSD if you want to run Android apps on Windows 11
at the end of january Microsoft Promise what was the first major update of Windows 11, which began to be delivered to the public in February. Among the novelties in this update is the ability to run applications Android.
In other words, this February update made available a version preview Give Amazon App StoreUnfortunately, it is only available to users in the US, and there is no date for its global availability yet.
Additionally, Microsoft has published the minimum system requirements for running Android apps on Windows 11, and the company has recommended solid-state drives, usually called SSDs, as the storage type. Although there is no specific mention of SATA III or NVMe, both should suffice.
But here are the requirements that Microsoft revealed:
- RAM – 8 GB minimum but 16 GB recommended
- Storage Type – Solid State Drive (SSD)
- Processor – 8th Gen Intel Core or better, AMD Ryzen 3000 or better, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8c or better
- Architecture: X64 or ARM64
Interestingly, for Windows 11 itself, Microsoft did not specifically specify the preferred storage type, only mentioning “64 GB” as a requirement. Microsoft seems to feel that running the Windows Android Subsystem (WSA) could be a big part in getting hard drives to work.
Another interesting conclusion is the omission of Ryzen 2000 processors, since only Ryzen 3000 is listed in the requirements table. The Ryzen 2000 series CPUs (not the Ryzen 2000 APU) are based on the Zen+ micro architecture and are officially supported by Microsoft for Windows 11.
