Bad news! This new Windows 11 feature will NOT be a part of the release on October 5
- At the Windows 11 launch two months ago, Microsoft had said that it will have support for Android apps via the Amazon Appstore. Windows 11 release date announced by Microsoft is October 5.
Microsoft Windows 11 release date has been officially announced. According to the company, Windows 11 launch date is October 5. Windows 11 comes with a slew of updates and changes that include an all-new design, Snap Layouts, Teams Chat, and a lot more. But one of the most interesting Windows 11 features won't be part of the launch on October 5. When the OS was first announced, Microsoft said that Windows 11 will have support for Android apps via the Amazon Appstore. However, Android app support wasn't available in the original previews. Now, Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 11 Android apps support will not be there on its October 5 launch.
Microsoft revealed the latest development in a blog post. It announced the Windows 11 release date and confirmed the features that will be included. Unfortunately, support for Windows 11 Android apps isn't one of those features. The announcement post said that the feature will arrive for Windows Insiders in the “coming months,” which doesn't reveal an exact release date. Microsoft used the same terminology when it first announced the feature at Windows 11 launch. On the other hand, the company has fixated several times that it is going to bring Android app support to Windows 11 users later this year. However, it hasn't announced any specifics yet.
Microsoft is going all-in with a new design for Windows 11. The latest OS comes with a clean design that features rounded corners with a centred Start menu and taskbar. However, if you want, you can customize the latter to appear on the usual left-hand side. Further, Windows 11 is moving to be more like macOS in terms of look and feel. While the widgets have been around for a while, they are now accessible directly from the taskbar. Moreover, you can personalise them with whatever you want.
Microsoft wants to take on Facetime and other video conferencing apps that are used for purposes other than work. Hence, the company is integrating Microsoft Teams to Windows 11 in a bid to offer a one-stop solution in messaging and video calls for users. You can now access Teams directly from the Windows 11 taskbar. Windows 11 also includes two new features for a better multitasking experience. It comes with Snap Groups and Snap Layouts, which is a collection of apps you are using simultaneously that sits in the taskbar. This can be fired up or minimised at once for easier multitasking. You can now also plug and unplug an extended monitor without issues.
