It would seem that the system requirements for mobile software are generally lower than those for desktop software. But Microsoft thinks otherwise: the official system requirements for running Android programs on Windows 11 have appeared on the company’s website. As it turned out, not all owners of productive PCs and laptops will be able to take advantage of this opportunity.
According to Microsoft , running Android apps from the Windows Store requires at least an 8th Gen Intel Core i3 or AMD Ryzen 3000-series processor. The company does not explain why Ryzen 2000-based computers are not suitable, but the snag is supposedly their lack of support for the Intel Bridge technology used to run mobile software.
In addition, the PC must have at least 8 GB of RAM (16 GB recommended) and an SSD drive. At the same time, you will need to enable the virtualization function. To download Android apps, you also need to install the Amazon Appstore (not yet available in all regions) under a registered account.
