Microsoft (MSFT) presented the new software, Windows 11, during an online event on Thursday. The update represents a significant overhaul of its flagship operating system for personal computers. The announcement comes about six years after introducing Windows 10, the world’s most widely used PC operating system, with over 1.3 billion devices.

You would have to run a 64-bit CPU (or SoC), 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. Unfortunately, the specs are only slightly higher than Windows 10’s current requirements to install it, marking the end of Windows support for older 32-bit hardware platforms, even though it will continue to run 32-bit software.

Compatible Apps

One of the most significant disadvantages for Microsoft’s App Store is the absence of compatible apps, which made things like Windows on ARM hard to love. Today, the company announced that Android apps would work on Windows 11.

They won’t be limited to emulator windows on the software — the integration means the apps will be in the Start menu, show up with individual dedicated icons on the taskbar, and launch with desktop shortcuts, too. They’ll begin to appear in the Microsoft Store, but you can also install them through the Amazon (AMZN) app store.

Panos Panay, Microsoft’s chief product officer, noted that Microsoft would allow developers to use their payment platforms to charge customers. The apps will keep 100 percent of any revenue they earn from their apps, another stark contrast to Apple’s App Store policies. 

Apple App (AAPL) has always insisted that developers use Apple’s payment technology and take up to 30 percent of any revenue generated by apps. However, the fight over payments broke out a few months ago.

Crypto Apps On Android

Crypto payment apps automate transacting by businesses since it allows the cryptocurrency payments for goods and services. The apps on Android will work on Windows 11. The apps allow payment to occur from any country and emphasize the security of blockchain-based cryptocurrencies. When a customer or organization makes a transaction, it goes through the cryptocurrency payment gateway at the fixed exchange rate and, by default, converts the fiat currency.
