This week Microsoft started rolling out an updated version of Windows Subsystems for Android for Insiders using Windows 11. The update improves the integration of the subsystem into the software platform, as well as several new features and improvements related to video playback.
Regarding innovations and improvements, we note the possibility of decoding H.264 videos with hardware acceleration. For this reason, the process of working with Android applications already available in the catalog that support high-definition video playback is optimized. The developers have also made a number of platform-level networking changes that will be used in the future to improve the networking experience in Windows subsystems for Android.
The update brings a number of improvements to the integration of Windows mail clients with mobile applications launched from the Windows subsystem for Android. These changes are visible in applications that can run email clients or send messages. In addition, the developers fixed a bug due to which in some cases users could not disable 4x MSAA anti-aliasing, and also improved the data entry system in the Windows subsystem for Android.
An update to the Android subsystem in Windows was rolled out earlier this week. It should be available soon to all Insiders using compatible devices. When exactly the update can be released is still unknown.
