Windows 10 to make run mobile apps built for Android


Microsoft is now developing a project named Latte that would make access app developers to bring their Android apps directly to Windows 10 with no changes in the codes.

The app developers just get to make package their Android apps into MSIX format and post those to the Microsoft Store.

MSIX is an app package format that make supports a modern app to packaging experience to all Windows apps.
At now, users being able to run Android apps on their personal computer via app streaming using the ‘Your Phone’ app built into Windows 10.

These functionalities, for the first time, have been limited to most Samsung devices.
The Project Latte will make app developers to bring apps to Windows 10 that don’t have a Windows version available.

Latte, could not be supported by Play Services as Google doesn’t allow Play Services to be installed on anything other than native Android devices and Chrome OS.

That is to be cleared that apps that require Play Services APIs will need to be updated to remove those dependencies before they can be submitted on Windows 10.

As earlier, Microsoft tried the same with a similar project codenamed Astoria which could not make the most.

Project Latte would be managed by the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).

“Microsoft has announced recently that WSL support for GUI based Linux applications, and GPU acceleration which should make the performance of apps running through WSL,” as mentioned in a report
