Earlier this week, Microsoft released the first version of Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) to Insiders in the Beta and Release Preview channels. Though originally meant for Insiders to test out, any compatible Windows 11 install can get WSA up and running in no time.
Microsoft offers WSA through the Amazon Appstore. However, this currently works only with PCs set to the US region and with an Amazon US account. The good news is that you do not actually need the Amazon Appstore to run WSA.
In this tutorial, we will show how to get WSA and up and running without an Amazon Appstore and sideload many popular Android apps via ADB. We also take things a step further and show how you can enable Google Play Services and use the Play Store with some command line magic.
