Run Android apps on Windows 10 without an emulator


Not many people know that you can run Android apps on Windows 10 without having to use an emulator like Windows 11.

I specifically focused on this feature by Microsoft in their announcement of Windows 11, but it is not a new feature and was available for Windows 10.

This feature only works with Samsung phones in Windows 10, and Microsoft has promised to make the feature available for all Android phones.

You can access these apps from the Start menu or the Apps menu on the Windows 10 system tray.

You must have the latest version of Windows 10 installed in addition to the Your Phone companion app, an Android system newer than 9.0, and both devices on the same network.

Then start the Companion Phone app on your computer until you see this message:

You can install the application on your phone through Google Play or scan the code that appears on the screen in front of you with the phone’s camera.

You’ll also need to give the app all access to your phone’s calls, photos, and text messages.

Next, click the Applications tab on the left menu of the screen and then select the application you want to launch to open it in its own window.

You can also right-click the application until you pin it to the Start menu or the applications list to the taskbar.

You can now use the application directly from the Windows 11 system and install it on the computer without installing it on the phone.

This means that you can use a different account for the same application on both the phone and the computer as if the computer were turning into a phone.
