Microsoft Pushes Update to Windows Subsystem for Android on Windows 11

Windows Subsystem for Android

Microsoft has rolled out an update for Windows Subsystem for Android on Windows 11 to all Windows Insider Channels such as Canary, Dev, Beta, and Release Preview. The update with version number 2304.40000.5.0 will add package verification, enhanced reliability, and AppLink support.

The package verification for apps on WSA ensures that Android apps are scanned using anti-virus software. However, the issue occurs only in those scenarios where software is installed on Windows prior to app installation. The flight provides the ability for users to configure memory assigned to Android. After the installation of the Windows Subsystem for Android, Android apps will be launched when a user opens the supported app link from any app with Android AppLink support. The Linux kernel has been updated to 5.15.94 with WSA reliability and performance enhancements.

Microsoft recently released Windows 11 Build 22000.2001 to the Release Preview Channel. The update resolved an issue that affects searchindexer.exe, Narrator, and Server Message Block. If you receive an unexpected password expiration notice, then the issue has been resolved.

The latest flight has addressed an issue that affects the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service. The update has resolved an issue that affects scheduled tasks when scheduled tasks are enabled. The update resolves an issue that affects the Storage Spaces Direct cluster. The flight has fixed an issue that affects access to Tab settings for IE mode sites and dot sourcing.
