Until 2017, Microsoft had a desktop operating system, Windows 10, and a mobile system, Windows Phone. This has gone down in history and currently the Redmond company has Android as its mobile operating system, although it is not theirs.
The growth of Android in most countries, as we have seen in Europe for example, has allowed the company to recover, which now plans to go further.
2021 will be a year of great changes
As reported by Windows Central, Microsoft is completing the creation of the Windows 10 roadmap for next year, and there will be some big changes. Launches are being studied such as the possibility of having a subscription to application stores, a computer in the cloud to connect from anywhere …
But among all these new things, there is one that can be particularly important in the Android world. The firm headed by Satya Nadella is considering the possibility of making it possible to install Android applications on Windows 10.
Native integration of Android applications
Those of you who use Windows 10 computers and Android mobiles are surely familiar with the Your Phone app, which allows you to join both devices and share pictures, text messages, answer calls on your computer, etc.
Microsoft is rumored to consider going further and allow the installation of applications on their computers. These Android apps would work as they are now run from emulators, but more reliably and efficiently.
It could be a change in the way we run programs in Windows 10 and a great opportunity for developers.
There is still no decision made, and while there is talk of 2021 to make this possibility a reality, we fear that it may come in the fall, as major Windows updates emerge.
