In the fall of 2021, Microsoft announced that it had released the first major update to the Windows 11 operating system. “The upgrade will include support for Android applications, which will be restricted only to the residents of the United States, along with a weather widget, the ability to show the time and date on multiple monitors in the taskbar, and several other enhancements.”
The most eagerly anticipated new feature of Windows 11 is the ability to run Android apps on the operating system, which Microsoft has now made possible in the first big update of Windows 11.
The Amazon Appstore, which can be found in the Microsoft Store, will be used to obtain mobile applications. There are no additional steps or knowledge required by the user to install and run Android apps on Windows 11. Users in the United States are the only ones who can use this feature at the moment.
Currently, a small number of applications are available for download (less than 60), and the Google Play Store cannot be installed. However, Microsoft has promised to make it easier to use Android apps on Windows 11 soon. The Play Store could be installed through APK files even when this functionality was still being tested by developers, and this method also worked for installing mobile apps.

The Taskbar on Windows 11
The taskbar, one of the most important parts of the Windows 11 user interface, has undergone some modifications. First and foremost, we’d like to point out the addition of functionality for showing the date and time on multiple displays, which was not included when the software platform was first released. It is possible to start sharing a window in Teams directly from the taskbar. The weather widget, which is familiar to Windows 10 users, was also included.
Windows 11 Dark Mode
Notepad, one of the newer programmes, has a more up-to-date look that better reflects the general look of Windows 11. In recent years, the dark mode has become a popular feature. It has already been used in a lot of other apps, so it is here as well.
Groove Music will replace Media Player as the default music and video playback application at the same time. It has been revealed that Microsoft is still working on the next major upgrade, which is being referred to as Sun Valley 2. The new version is expected to bring with it a slew of additional features and fixes. According to reports, this update is expected to be released to the public in the fall.
