Windows Subsystem for Android 13 on Windows 11 with Magisk Root and Google Play Store

Microsoft just recently released Windows Subsystem for Android with build 2211 featuring Android 13. This comes as a preview build and users need to register as a beta tester on Windows 11 before they can download WSA with Android 13. However, you can bypass that by downloading the latest Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) build 2211.40000.10.0 based on Android 13 with Magisk root and Google Play Store pre-installed.

If you don’t already know, Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA) is a compatibility layer for running Android applications on Microsoft Windows OS. It was introduced with Windows 11 as a way to bring the functionality of the Android operating system to the Windows platform.

Recently, there has been a lot of excitement about the release of Android 13, the latest version of the Android operating system. It has now come to WSA on Windows 11.
