Since various emulators are available on the market, running Android applications on Windows 10 is not a problem. Bluestacks is a good example, but there are many other examples. Using the emulator, you can play your favorite android games on the PC, and almost all operations on the phone can be completed.
But in the future, you may be able to run Android applications natively on Windows 10. According to a report, the company plans to enable Android developers to port their applications to Windows 10.
These applications will be listed on the Microsoft Store, and developers only need to do little or no code to run locally on a Windows 10 laptop.
The project is codenamed “Latte” and may be announced as early as 2021. Of course, you may need to make some adjustments to the application, because most applications take ARM into consideration.
In addition, for applications that rely heavily on the Google Play services API to run like Ube, they may have to be modified first. Google is unlikely to allow the installation of Play services on Windows.
From the beginning, the Play service was only supported on Android and ChromeOS, and there was no other support.
This is not the first time Microsoft has attempted such an action. The Project Astoria project is a similar project announced at the company’s developer “build” conference in 2015, aimed at bringing Android applications to Windows 10.
The project was showcased with Project Islandwood and is intended to enable iOS developers to port their applications to Windows 10.
Microsoft later cancelled the Astoria project in February 2016. The company said at the time that it would work on Windows Bridge for iOS and make it the only Bridge option to introduce mobile code to all Windows 10 devices (including Xbox and PC). “
