When Windows 11 launches on 5 October, it won't be coming with support for Android apps despite the feature being one of the most anticipated ones from the upcoming operating system.

General manager of Windows marketing at Microsoft, Aaron Woodman said, "We look forward to continuing our journey to bring Android apps to Windows 11 and the Microsoft Store through our collaboration with Amazon and Intel; this will start with a preview for Windows Insiders over the coming months".

Based on Woodman's statement, the operating system will not include Android apps support will most probably be not available upon launch. However, it will still include features, including Microsoft Teams integration, a new design with an updated Start menu, Snap Layouts, Groups, Desktops for improved multitasking, and an improved Microsoft Store app".

Windows 11 will be a free upgrade for eligible Windows 10 PCs, with new PCs getting the upgrade first before existing devices. Microsoft expects to offer the free upgrade by mid-2022 to all of its Windows 10 users.
