Microsoft has today announced the rollout of an update for the Windows Subsystem for Android for all Windows 11 Insiders across all channels. The update takes the form of version 2203.40000.1.0 and is now available to download from the official Microsoft Store bringing with it a number of new features and improvements including security updates, tweaks to video playback and Windows integration.
Windows 11 Android update
H.264 Video Hardware Decoding
This update allows Windows Subsystem for Android to take advantage of hardware accelerated H.264 decoding. This should enable a better experience on several apps in the current app catalog that take advantage of high-definition video playback.
With this update comes networking changes in the platform to enable future improvements. To help us improve networking features in Windows Subsystem for Android, we encourage Insiders to file feedback for any network issues encountered in supported apps.
We’ve made improvements to Windows integration with Windows Subsystem for Android! In this update, the integration between Windows email clients and mobile apps has been improved. Apps that take advantage of launching a mail client or message should benefit from this change immediately.
MSAA (Multisample anti-aliasing) Changes
While MSAA is a useful feature for several game apps, users were reporting that 4X MSAA could not be disabled. We were previously force-enabling anti-aliasing, which has now been fixed.
Improvements to Input
We’ve made improvements to general input in Windows Subsystem for Android™, including improved scrolling in the Amazon Appstore and Kindle apps.
