How to install the Amazon Appstore app for Windows 11



Among the major announcements about Windows 11 during Microsoft’s announcement, was its integration of Android app support. Today WalkingCat posted a link to the Amazon Appstore app on the Microsoft Store. We have a long history of sharing How-To guides for sideloading Microsoft Store apps onto Windows 10 and more recently Windows 11 and today we want to share how to install Microsoft’s Amazon App Store preview app on Windows 11.

Windows 11 is going to ship on October 5th without Android app support that comes with the Amazon Appstore, but hints have been popping up of Microsoft continued work on its integration. The Amazon Appstore app popping up in the Microsoft Store is the latest of these hints and fellow Windows Insiders may soon get a taste of experience with a future Windows Insiders build.

How to install the new Amazon Appstore app on Windows 11

  • When the download completes a dialog window will popup prompting you to install the app
  • Hit the install button
  • Unfortunately, at the time of writing this how to guide, the app is just a placeholder, but the once the full app replaces the placeholder on Microsoft’s servers, you need only update the app from within the Microsoft Store
