One of the key highlights of the Windows 11 is the support for Android apps. While the feature was not available at launch, Microsoft finally started to roll out Android apps support for Windows 11 last week. Now, the company has listed the minimum specifications to run Android apps on Windows 11.

According to Microsoft, these are the minimum hardware requirements to run Android apps:

  • RAM
    • Minimum: 8 GB
    • Recommended: 16 GB
  • Storage
    • Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Processor
    • Intel Core i3 8th Gen (minimum) or above
    • AMD Ryzen 3000 (minimum) or above
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 8c (minimum) or above
  • Processor architecture
    • x64 or ARM64
  • Virtual Machine Platform

Thanks to the new 'Windows Subsystem for Android,' Windows 11 run Android apps natively without installing any third-party apps. Microsoft has partnered with Amazon to offer the Amazon Appstore natively in the Microsoft Store on Windows 11. It offers users around 1,000 apps that can be installed with just a few clicks.

If you look carefully at the minimum specs, they're not too steep assuming you've bought a new laptop in the past few years. But, it's worth noting that the specs are above the baseline specs required to run Windows 11. Another interesting thing to note is that Intel chips from all the way back to 2017 are supported, but for AMD, you need to have a chip that's from 2019 or later.
