1. Package Verification for Apps on WSA

Microsoft has taken an important step to ensure the safety and security of Android apps running on Windows 11. With package verification, Android apps are now scanned using the anti-virus software already installed on the Windows system before the installation process commences. This extra layer of protection offers peace of mind to users, ensuring that their system remains safeguarded against potential threats.



2. Customizable Memory Allocation

Windows 11 users now have the flexibility to allocate memory resources according to their preferences. With this update, Microsoft introduces a user-configurable memory assignment feature, allowing individuals to allocate the desired amount of memory to the Android subsystem. Whether you need more memory for resource-intensive applications or wish to optimize your system's performance, this enhancement grants you greater control over your Windows 11 experience.



3. Android AppLink Support

In a bid to enhance cross-app integration, Microsoft has introduced Android AppLink support for WSA. This means that whenever a user opens a supported app link from any app on their Windows 11 device, the corresponding Android app will be launched seamlessly. This seamless interaction between Windows and Android apps opens up new possibilities for multitasking and improves the overall user experience.



4. Updated Linux Kernel

As part of Microsoft's ongoing commitment to providing the best possible experience, the Linux kernel in WSA has been updated to version 5.15.94. This update brings a host of performance improvements, bug fixes, and compatibility enhancements, ensuring a smoother and more reliable experience for running Linux-based applications.



5. WSA Reliability and Performance Enhancements

Microsoft has also focused on improving the reliability and performance of WSA with this update. By addressing various issues and implementing optimizations, users can expect a more stable and efficient Android subsystem, enabling them to seamlessly run their favorite Android apps without disruptions.



End Note

Please note that this update is currently available exclusively to Windows Insider channels. However, it is a testament to Microsoft's commitment to delivering a robust and seamless integration between Windows and Android ecosystems.


Microsoft remains dedicated to pushing the boundaries of innovation, empowering users to unlock their full potential, and creating a unified and cohesive computing experience across devices. The latest update for Windows Subsystem for Android™ on Windows 11 is a significant step in that direction, and we cannot wait to see how users leverage these new features.
