Greetings from Mi Community Bangladesh Tech Team! We hope you and your family are safe and well.
Earlier this year, Microsoft began rolling out new Your Phone features that enabled tighter integration between select Android and Windows devices. Now it looks like the company is setting its sights on something higher than merely mirroring apps across screens — Microsoft reportedly has a new plan to make it easy for Android apps to run directly on Windows.
Internally referred to as Latte, the project will allow app developers to bring their Android apps to Windows 10 with little to no code changes, according to Windows Central. Developers would submit them through the Microsoft Store packaged as MSIX. The project will reportedly be powered by Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). However, Microsoft will allegedly need to provide its own Android subsystem for Android apps to run.
While this would be a cool move that could dramatically expand the catalog of supported apps on Windows. So while it’s a decent solution, offering users native options without the need for a specific smartphone could provide users with a much-improved experience and potentially boost the Windows platform. Crucially, it would put Windows on a collision course with Google’s Chrome OS, which can run Android apps and Linux packages.
Microsoft currently supports multiple apps platforms, including PWA, UWP, Win32, and Linux. The addition of Android apps, if it happens, could well and truly make Windows a universal operating system. Microsoft is developing Project Latte with the goal of announcing it in 2021 and shipping it later that fall, but nothing is set in stone. This wouldn't be the first time Microsoft's plans to bring Android apps to Windows have failed.
