  • Microsoft is bringing the Amazon AppStore to 31 more countries.
  • Some new territories include Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Spain.
  • Microsoft is not specifying a specific date, but it’ll happen in the coming days.

Microsoft has announced that the Amazon AppStore is coming to 31 new territories “in the next few weeks.” According to the company, the platform that facilitates support for Android apps on Windows 11 will soon be available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, and more.

In addition, the company says that the Amazon AppStore will offer over 20,000 Android apps and games, such as popular mobile games Coin Master, Epic Seven, Machington Mansion, along with family and kids favorites such as Disney Coloring World, KidsBeeTV, Lego Duplo World, and apps like Kindle, Audible, and FlipaClip, and Lutron.

The app store has only been available with 50 apps in the United States and Japan as a preview, but now the app account and discoverability through the Microsoft Store (in combination with the Amazon AppStore) will improve. “Like any other content, you will now find them in editorials and search results, you will see inline ratings and reviews, and you will be able to share a link to your favorite app with your friends,” the company says.

Alongside the availability news, the company has also recently begun the rollout of the WSA September update that brings various improvements, such as faster graphic performance with hardware acceleration, DRM video support, better input handling across touch, mouse and keyboard, and security changes.

The update is currently available for testers with devices enrolled in the Dev Channel of the Windows Insider Program.
