WSATools that allows “Android APK installation on Windows 11 without knowledge of commands” was pulled from store by Microsoft. The app has now made a comeback to store with a new version 0.1.7. You can download it by following the direct download link provided below.

Microsoft recently enabled Android apps installation on Windows 11 via Amazon Appstore and enthusiasts found a way to install Android APKs and even Google Apps (Play Store). The installation of APKs and Google Apps is done via the ADB tool and command line interface.

But most of users may not be comfortable in using ADB tool and command line interface. So, now a developer has created a tool called WSATools that will allow installation of APKs without needing the knowledge of ADB and command line interface.

As per developer of this app, this update also improves ADB installation. Now it won’t crash anymore for those of you that had this bug. This also fixes a few loading screens getting stuck!
