Microsoft debunks rumors about bringing Android apps to Xbox

Speculations about Android apps coming to Xbox appeared last week. However, the information has been eventually denied by Microsoft.

The whole conversation started last week when XDA Developers spotted the appearance of the Windows Subsystem for Android app on the Microsoft Store. The page also listed Xbox as a compatible device.

According to a new Android Authority report, it was simply an error or placeholder text. As for now, Microsoft has no plans on bringing Android apps to its consoles. And the app’s description has also been fixed.

In June, Microsoft said that Windows 11 will support Android apps. However, the company later clarified that the new feature will be added a few months after the launch of the new OS.
