Microsoft is allegedly working on a software solution that will let users on Windows 10 run Android apps natively.
According to sources familiar with the matter, the project is codenamed ‘Latte’ and is set to be available in early 2021.
Currently, Windows 10 users can run Android apps on their PCs via app streaming using the Your Phone app, this functionality, however, is limited to a handful of Samsung devices.
Installing and running Android apps locally on your PC will provide a much better experience and won’t depend on having an Android smartphone.
Project Latte is, however, said to lack support for Google Play Services, this means that apps that require any API provided by Play Services to run will need to be updated to properly function without it in order to work on Windows 10.
It will be interesting to see the development Microsoft makes with this idea.
