Here's A Cool Hack That Lets You Run The Google Play Store And Apps On Windows 11
When we posted up that story, chatter around the virtual water cooler was that some enterprising hackers would eventually get Google Play Services (including the Play Store) up and running on WSA. Well, we were right—we just didn't expect it to happen quite so soon. Yes, indeed: self-described "Device Bricker" ADeltaX (@ADeltaXForce on Twitter) has produced a pile of scripts that allows users to install Google's Android framework on Windows 11.
Still, it's literally the first day for this hack, and there are already pre-packaged solutions popping up. If you're the sort of person to download application packages created by Internet strangers from mostly-anonymous file hosts, Redditor /u/Rageman666 has slapped the modified WSA package onto Google Drive. If you plan to fool with this hack, make sure you uninstall any existing WSA install first.
If you instead want to wait for a more stable and functional version, you might miss out. Microsoft almost assuredly went to Google before partnering with Amazon, and if Google wanted its apps on Windows 11, they'd be there. It may happen that Microsoft, Google, or even Amazon take steps to shut down this unauthorized use of WSA, so you might want to hit it while it's hot.
