Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) is updated to Android 12.1 by Microsoft. Android app compatibility was added to Windows 11, allowing users to quickly install and run Android apps on a Windows PC. In order to expand the capability even further, Microsoft has released an upgrade for the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA), which includes a number of new features and updates the WSA to Android 12.1. Here are the specifics.
A new Windows 11 WSA update has been released.
The new update, version 2204.40000.15.0, has brought the WSA up to Android 12.1 aka Android 12L, which will enhance the overall experience. In addition to an update to Android 12.1, the Windows Subsystem for Android has gotten a number of new features and enhancements.
First and foremost, the Windows Subsystem for Android’s settings app has been redesigned. Clearer settings groups, organized navigation, and a better user experience are all part of the revamp. It also includes a new diagnostic data viewer for analyzing diagnostic data as well as settings options for enabling fixes for specific apps.
The telemetry diagnostic setting is now disabled by default. You can activate telemetry of Android app usage at any time if this information is essential to you. This update also improved networking, making it easier for apps to connect to devices that share the same network connection as the Windows PC.
The latest update also improves integration between Windows and Android apps. Like on Android and iOS, Windows taskbar icons will now display which Android apps use the microphone, location, and other system services. There will also be an auto-hidden taskbar to reveal or conceal active Android apps. This is accessible to Windows 11 Insiders running builds 22621 and up.
The camera in Android apps has also been improved, as has input device compatibility. Aside from that, the latest WSA release includes a host of fixes and changes. The complete changelog may be seen here.
For those who are members of the Insiders program, the latest WSA update 2204.40000.15.0 may be obtained through the Microsoft Store. This should ultimately reach all users, but we don’t know when that will be. We will keep you updated, so stay tuned.
