This feature has actually become one of the most awaited by many users, with its ability to access Android applications from the desktop. Unfortunately, Windows 11 will not immediately support this feature at launch in October 2021.

And the good news is that Microsoft is starting to give a breath of fresh air to this feature. Next month, the First Public Preview will be released soon, one of which will bring the Android app trial feature to Windows 11. In addition, Microsoft will also provide several other improvements to the taskbar as well as Notepad and Media Player applications that are more attractively redesigned.

As both were missing on the launch of Windows 11, but Microsoft is still working on improving the taskbar further to bring back the missing functionality like drag and drop.
