It's gonna be exciting...


1 min read

It’s been a few months since the launch of Windows 11, so it’s time for a slightly more significant upgrade. One of the biggest news is the support for Android applications, which has been talked about for quite some time.

For now, it’s only available to users in the U.S., in the form of the ability to use Amazon’s app store. In the first phase, about 1,000 applications from the Amazon Appstore will be available to U.S. users, which includes a number of books in audio form and applications for the Kindle.


Of course, what most of us expect is to expand to other regions, but also support for the Google Play store, which brings incomparably more content. Other innovations brought by the new Windows upgrade include support for easier silencing of Teams calls.


The date and time are now also available on the secondary monitor, and the weather widget shows real-time conditions. The Media Player has also been redesigned, and Notepad offers the possibility of using it in dark mode, ie with a dark background instead of white.
