Android Apps on Windows 11 Dev Channel: How to Install Windows Subsystem for Android Manually With Msixbundle

Posted by   on

Windows 11 Beta Channel users can now Android apps now but surprisingly, the same is not available for the Insiders under the Dev channel. You would be forgiven to think the Dev channel will receive the new feature first of all. But anyway, here’s a way to install Windows Subsystem for Android on a Dev Channel Windows 11 build and be able to run Android apps.

Step 1: Download Windows Subsystem for Android Msixbundle

Visit this Google Drive link (via) to download the Msixbundle file for Windows Subsystem for Android. Click Download.

Click Download anyway.

Step 2: Install Windows Subsystem for Android Msixbundle

Copy path of the Msixbundle file. Open the folder where your downloaded file is saved. Right-click on the file and select Copy as path.

Open Powershell. Press the Windows key and then type Powershell. From results, click Run as administrator.

In your Powershell window, type the command below:

Add-AppxPackage -path "path-of-the-file-comes-here"

Tips about the command above:

  • You can paste the file’s path in the command above. You have already copied it with the Copy as path command above. So, simply press ctrl+v to paste after typing the part of the command preceding it (that is, Add-AppxPackage -path ).

  • Do not remove the quotation marks around the filename.

  • If our file’s path (from Copy as path) is this:

  • Then our command will be this:
    Add-AppxPackage -path “C:\Users\kapil\Downloads\1quick\12\MicrosoftCorporationII.WindowsSubsystemForAndroid_1.7.32815.0_neutral___8wekyb3d8bbwe.Msixbundle”

Here’s how it looks on our PC.

Hit the enter key to run the command.

You will get a message showing ‘Deployment operation progress’ and when it is done, the Windows Subsystem for Android will be installed on your PC with Windows 11 Dev channel.

When done, type Exit and then hit enter to exit Powershell.

To open Windows Subsystem for Android to run Android apps, press the Windows key and search for Windows Subsystem for Android.

Click Windows Subsystem for Android. Or click Open.

Now, you can run Android apps on your Windows 11 PC running Dev Channel builds.

You will need to use adb (adb install command, that is) to install/sideload apps.

Hopefully, the official support comes over soon.
