The OS minimum requirements listed for the Windows Subsystem for Android are “Windows 10 version 22000.0 or higher, Xbox One.” This appears to be a typo, as build 22000.0 is Windows 11, not Windows 10. Windows 11 build 22449 rolled out to Insiders in the Dev Channel yesterday.

Microsoft hasn’t mentioned Android apps coming to Xbox consoles at any point. While the system requirements mention Xbox One, the overview section only lists the Windows Subsystem for Android as being available on PCs. It’s unlikely that Android apps are on the way to Xbox consoles, so people shouldn’t read into the listed system requirements of a placeholder for an app.

The delay of Android app support on Windows 11 disappointed some people, but it should be available in testing over the coming months. We don’t know the exact timeframe for when Microsoft will make support for Android apps on Windows 11 generally available.
