Hi all,
Just joined this Forum, so apologies if I post anything Stupid :)
I recently bought a used Laptop - Lenovo V130, because it was Windows 10, but upgradable to Windows 11.
I have done the upgrade, but then found that I needed to install Amazon Appstore from the Microsoft Store, to enable Android Apps ?

That app wasn't in my Microsoft Store, which I searched and found that because I upgraded, I needed to follow instructions to install Amazon Appstore. I followed a few different guides, but they all came up to say Amazon Appstore was not compatible afterwards.
I also tried a guide to allowing Google Play to work to install Android apps, but got completely lost with that :-(

Is there a simple way, to allow me to install and use Android Apps on the Laptop Please ?

TIA

Your time zone suggests you are not in the US. The Amazon Appstore is not yet available outside the US - see here for example.

So, Does this mean there is no way to install Android apps on Windows 11 in the UK ?
And if so, will there ever be ?

I believe this functionality may come with the 22H2 upgrade that is due soon.

Of course there will be. They either always start with one country or another and eventually get to the others...
