how to install google play store on windows 11 right now

Last week, Microsoft launched the first version of Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA), whose purpose is to enable Windows users to launch Android apps alongside Windows apps. Unfortunately, the first version is limited to the Amazon Appstore and only a small number of early apps. Wanting more, an Italian UX design student using the nickname ADeltaX on the internet has figured out a way to install the Google Play Store on Windows 11, and he created a video guide and step-by-step instructions on his GitHub to make it easy for others to follow in his footsteps.

The whole process takes roughly half an hour from start to finish, and it involves the following steps:

  1. Download the Windows Subsystem for Android.
  2. Install the Windows Subsystem for Linux (yes, Linux).
  3. Install the unzip and lzip software packages.
  4. Download up-to-date Google Apps.
  5. Extract the Windows Subsystem for Android.
  6. Download, configure, and run the provided installation scripts to create a modified version of the Windows Subsystem for Android.
  7. Install the Windows Subsystem for Android using PowerShell.

From there, you can sign in to the Google Play Store and download any app or game. Just don’t expect everything to run smoothly because there’s a good reason why Microsoft is keeping the first version of WSA limited to a handful of hand-picked apps.

If all this sounds like too much for something that might not even work properly, then you should know that there’s also a pretty straightforward way to install Android apps outside of the Amazon Appstore, and it revolves around a free tool called WSATools, which you can download from the Microsoft Store.

Just keep in mind that apps that depend on the Google Play Store won’t work using this method. Let us know if this guide helped you install Google Play Store on Windows 11.
